PG Podcast - Episode 33 - Marcos Ojeda on craft, design, engineering, and remote work
January 2018 (perspective of an assistant professor)
Marcos Ojeda (@nsfmc) is a designer living in San Diego and working remotely for a tech company. He graduated from MIT with a math+CS degree and the Rhode Island School of Design with an MFA. He's one of those mythical design+engineering unicorns that I alluded to in PG Vlog #79 - Market Demand for Design+Engineering Skills.
I've known Marcos since our college days at MIT when we both worked on the 7th floor of the Computer Science and A.I. Lab (CSAIL). He was in Rob Miller's user interface design group (where I ended up a decade later as a postdoc in 2013–2014), and I was in Mike Ernst's program analysis group. I hadn't talked to him in years, but our paths crossed again just last year when he arrived in town as his wife joined the faculty at UC San Diego.
In this PG Podcast, Marcos and I start off talking about his current experiences working remotely, and then we meander onto a variety of topics at the intersection of design and engineering.
