Hey, I'm Karol. I have been on the internet for a long time. Nice to meet you. As a teenager, I taught myself to code by following tutorials and customizing my myspace. I also shot black and white 35mm film and spent endless hours in darkrooms. I studied Graphic Design at The Fashion Institute of Technology and graduated in 2009, shortly after the first iPhone was released. I began freelancing in design studios, where I collaborated with some of the design industry's best-known professionals.

In 2014, I co-founded a hardware startup working on making meaningful digital files feel more tangible. We raised some money and were accepted into a hardware startup accelerator in San Francisco. I shipped my iMac to the west coast and spent my days in a state of the art lab; Sunlight beamed over 3D printers as I made my way to meetings. During those three months, my team rented two rooms in a dorm-room style hacker hostel. The front door opened with a Slack command, rent could be paid in Bitcoin, and a Dropcam overlooked the kitchen so people could see who didn't do their dishes. It was weird.

Today, I work at a startup accelerator where I collaborate with teams using emerging technology to solve some of the toughest challenges facing cities today. I  am also working on carbon calculation and sustainability management software every business can use. I am beginning to start writing and hope to soon use this site to share my thoughts around ethics and technology.
