👋🏻 Hello. I’m Brad Lauster and this is my blog.

🗽 I grew up in upstate New York, and after college, moved to California, where I lived in Sacramento, Palo Alto, San Francisco, and Santa Barbara. In 2010, I moved to Hong Kong and then spent seven years in New York City.

🌁 These days, I’m back in San Francisco, where I live with my wife, Jessica, and our huge cat, Mewzi.

💪🏼 I’m currently the Director of User Experience at a fitness startup. We’ll be launching our product in 2020, so more on that later this year. In the past, I’ve worked for Intel, Stanford University, LinkedIn, AppFolio, Bindo (a company I co-founded), Equinox, WW (formerly Weight Watchers), and Clover.

🍣 I love backpacking, rock climbing, riding bikes, skiing and being in and on the water. I’m also a food enthusiast, and a public transportation nerd.

✉️ If you’d like to work together or chat about something I’ve written, you can reach me at hi.bradlau@icloud.com. I’m also on Twitter at @bradlau, but email is the best way to get in touch.


💻 This site runs on blot.im and is mirrored on GitHub. I write the posts in iA Writer.

📈 I also use Simple Analytics and share those stats publicly.
