My name is Derek Labian
I was born in 1979 and, I live and work in The Woodlands, Texas. I have 1 sibling.
I'm happily married to the love of my life, Lori, and am the father of 3 little boys who can only be described as delightful trouble. Together, we make quite the gaggle.
A geek at heart, I've been fascinated with electronics and computers as long as I can remember.
I was living with my father when he passed away, I was 16. Afterword, I lived with my mother briefly but never returned to high school. Later that year, I moved out and joined the workforce. I've self taught myself and learned from many of the wonderful people I've worked with over the years.
In 1997 I started a hobby website on the web related to gaming that grew into something more. In 2001, I moved to Los Angeles to work with a business partner and now friend.
I love building things, the bigger the challenge, the better. Most of my technology experience is focused around platform programming, network engineering, and large-scale systems design. I also have strong legal, finance, and general business background. I am hyper-competitive and love to win.
I've started several businesses and contributed to others. I'm currently working on Fast.io (hosting this site).[email protected]
