Hi, I’m Rino.
I received my B.S. from U.C. Berkeley and my Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania. In 1999, my wife and I moved to Portland, OR. I spent 8 years working in the tech industry as a software engineer and as a manager. In 2007, I made the leap to starting my own company. Unfortunately, I made all the mistakes that people usually make, and we had to shut down in 2010.
Fortunately, I was lucky enough to join LinkedIn’s mobile team in 2010 pretty close to the beginning and right before our major rewrite of the mobile server using node.js. It’s been an awesome ride.
I’m still trying to start something on the side. It’s been hard to find the time, but certainly not as hard as living without some income.
Oh, and I also have three young, energetic boys.
Thanks for reading.
