• Hi my name is Patrick Hustad!

     

    I was born and raised in Southern California. I moved to Costa Rica when I was 19 and built a hotel in Playa Hermosa. I designed and managed the entire project from beginning to sell.

     

    I met my wife and we had our first son in Costa Rica, this is when I knew I had a bigger purpose . I realized I would dedicate my career to Technology because it was the future.

     

    We packed up our stuff and moved straight back to California. We rented a home in the heart of Silicon Valley Palo Alto and I enrolled in every tech course available at Stanford University. With the thirst of building something special I attended every startup event and interned at AOL - Palo Alto with a company called Startup Grind.

     

    Since then the company has grown from one city to over 300 cities worldwide. Let's just say I had a good play in that growth.We interviewed CEO's of successful tech companies to inspire entrepreneurs, engineers, designers and investors around the world. From there we moved back to Southern California where I would run the second chapter at AOL - Beverly Hills.

     

    Working with so many successful tech CEO's, it was only natural I started my own company. Within a few months I built a team, an MVP and raised $500,000. We failed . With the taste of building software and getting attention from investors, we began working on another startup and launched it into the app store.

     

    After being a Project Manager and UX Designer for 6 years, I decided to take my career further and attend the University of California - Irvine to become a Full Stack Developer.

     

    Fast forward 1.5 years , I have been programming and using several different technologies including HTML5, CSS3, Bootstrap, Flexbox, Mongo, Sql and found a love with React / React Native, Python and AWS Lambda, S3.

     

    I am currently working with one of the fastest growing tech companies in the world, Fast Field and finishing a few side projects to keep my development skills relevant.
