I'm Ken Mages, the CTO and Founder of Hamilton's Reserve. I take great pride in my family; my career has been diverse, exciting, and fortunate. I have worked with senior professionals at Apple, Google, Microsoft, Intel, and most notable tech firms.
Twelve years ago, I got a dog named Paddy, a Wheaten Terrier, who changed my life in more ways than I can express. I aspire to be the person my dog thinks I am.
I was born and raised in Chicago, where I still live. I attended the University of Illinois from 1974 to 1978.
I built an app that automatically deletes spam from Gmail, moves it to trash, and deletes itself every five minutes. Sometimes, I take photos.
Here are some of my favorite books, movies, and songs:
- The Book
Finally, I would like to share a quote from my late mother, Ruth Mages:
"The wealthiest man is not the one who has the most, but rather the one who needs the least."
