Bunnie, simply put, is an engineer. The Cardiff by the Sea, Calif., resident says he's somewhat of a hacker because he likes to explore complex systems and understand them at a deep level. "I've always liked the smell of new electronics. I think it is like the smell of a new adventure. Every time I get a new piece of hardware, I like to look inside and learn everything I can from a visual inspection." Blaming his father for his hacker sensibilities, Bunnie says, "He would never let me touch electronic parts because they contained harmful compounds like lead. That just made me more curious about the subject." Bunnie now spends his time designing nanophotonic integrated circuits for a startup company, Luxtera. He's also a big fan of electronic music, both from a DJ and dance perspective.
