Jeff definitely took a non-traditional path to software engineering. Before getting his degree he played poker professionally for 3 years and then became a poker coach!
Post-college, he worked at a number of software companies including Amazon and eBay as an engineer. Pretty quickly, Jeff realized that he prefers to work for himself. These days he is a podcaster, founder, and investor.

“Once I found computer science, I was like ‘this is the medium through which one can invent important things!’.”
