Eric Ruston - Engineer
Having graduated from Penn State University, I started out my career as a Civil Engineer, however my life-long passion for computing soon steered me into the world of Technology. I witnessed the rise of the internet, traveled to the west coast soon after, and experienced working in a start up company during the peak of the Dot Com boom. After the bust, I wore many hats, career-wise, but always kept my eyes on the latest tech developments. While working at the flagship Apple store in San Francisco, I first heard of cryptocurrency and was fascinated after doing some research. I now firmly believe that we are experiencing the rise of the internet 2.0, the early nineties saw the rise of the internet of telecommunications, this time, it is the internet of currency (and smart contracting). For me, block chain development is the way forward for the realization of the redemption and interconnectedness of all people on this planet.
On a personal note: I love getting out into the outdoors, hiking, and health and fitness. I played football in High school and judo in college. I also dabble in languages, having learned some Spanish and Mandarin, I am currently struggling to learn some Japanese
