I’m a father of three, cycling enthusiast and vagabond. I love to cook for a crowd and throw great parties. I'm a serial entrepreneur and geek at heart. I cut my teeth on the Apple II, Commodore and Amiga computers and suffered through the dial-up modem era.

I've traveled the world evangelizing technologies for a sustainable planet and humanity. Raised money from Facebook twice. Worked in RFID, energy efficiency, cleanweb, urban mobility and now in IoT with applications for smart agriculture, oil & gas, military and water security.

Earlier in my career, I organized many grassroots technology events and hackathons such as Barcamp, iPhoneDevCamp (founding team), and Facebook Developer Garages. I was also the first recipient of Facebook's fbFund way back in 2008!

I’m Twitter user #2806, Ping me @blakeburris
