Calen Fretts was inserted into the matrix in the small village of Pittsburgh, PA, 1985 Anno Domini.

On his 12th birthday, he began hacking. And he never stopped.

Fretts attended Virginia Tech starting in 2003, eventually gaining a degree in computer science.

During his time there and since, he incepted multiple websites of varying nature.

He also started… “waking up”, as they say. And around 2009, Calen unplugged from the matrix. And decided to do his best to save the world. In “mortal human being” terms, that is.

He went on to start two small web development firms; first in Atlanta, then Richmond.

Then he got engaged to a supermodel. Maybe not technically a supermodel, but you get the idea.

And they both moved to Northwest Florida.

In 2012, Mr. Fretts ran for U.S. Congress. He sadly garnered only 3% of the vote, due to a glitch in the matrix.

But more importantly in 2012, he also married that supermodel.

And he’s still working on saving the world.

I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
