    Working at SelfDecode has allowed me to work anywhere I want... literally. I get to do the thing I love while creating a new "office" wherever I see fit, even if it means grabbing a plastic chair to watch the sunset on the roof.

    Why do I love working at selfdecode? Because I love genomics. Being a genomics scientist is the third greatest job ever invented. The top two being French New Wave Filmmaker 1950-1967 and progressive house DJ from 1993-2003 respectively. And while I can't ever be those things, at selfdecode I can still pretend to be those things working remotely in my own office space that allows me to be a bedroom DJ while I have french new wave posters on my walls. All this and I can work in sweatpants, spend time with my friends and loved ones, and get heartburn eating the best junk food the streets of Los Angeles can provide.
