Barrett began building prototypes with a vintage PowerMac and a Lego robotics kit. After writing a tech column at Yale, he switched tracks to electrical engineering. Today you'll find him building robots with 3D-printed parts, or helping others to do so. Prior to joining NVIDIA, Barrett ran web infrastructure and development for a tutor-matching site, and designed components for Meta's AR glasses. When he¹s not obsessing over robots, he's probably biking or skiing somewhere in the Bay Area or Lake Tahoe.
