About

Me, bathing with a bunch of unimpressed snow monkeys.

Thanks for stopping by on my corner of the web!

You discovered the blog and personal site of Paul Bakaus, developer-turned-entrepreneur-turned-advocate-turned-PM-turned-YouTuber..well, I’m pretty scrappy and get to build products, lead teams and specialize in strategy, outreach & advocacy.

I currently lead the Creator Relations team at Google. To date, I’ve dedicated most of my professional career to improving the web and unlocking its potential for everyone. The projects I created (jQuery UI, Aves Engine) or helped succeed (jQuery, AMP, Chrome),  are powering the web in a myriad of ways. You’re welcome.

Personally, I live with my family in San Francisco, love plenty of Japanese things (especially pop culture related), read lots of comics, watch a lot of sci-fi/fantasy shows & movies, enjoy RPGs and Jump n’ Runs (and their music!), am really into food and love to explore the world.

Before you drift off, time for a boring disclaimer: The views stated on this blog are purely personal and represent my own, and not those of my employer.
