Ken M. Haggerty
Ken was born in Louisville, KY, to parents Kevin Haggerty and Rie Yoshimura. He has one older sister. Ken grew up in Tokyo, Japan; London, UK; and Summit, NJ, USA. In 2011, Ken graduated from MIT with an S.B. in Brain and Cognitive Sciences and a minor in Architecture. Ken then worked for a year as a contractor at Google [x], where he did user experience research for Google's self-driving cars project.
Ken is currently pursuing independent studies in app and business development (as seems to be the norm in SF...). He has taken classes in startup law and startup financing and has self-taught Objective-C / iOS app development and nonprofit law.
Ken is having fun with his Noisebridge profile page because he is interested in how UI can make you feel important even when you're not :p
