Shortly after high school, Clyde joined the United States Marine Corps as a Data Network Specialist. For most of his contract, Clyde lived in Okinawa, Japan. During this time, Clyde installed, configured, and managed data networks to communicate between Japan and neighboring countries.
After three years, Clyde left to attend Columbia University where he completed a B.A. in Computer Science. Prior to Sidewalk, Clyde worked at MongoDB on the C and C++ driver team, supporting new features, performance enhancements, and security patches.
Clyde grew up in Houston and now lives in Downtown Brooklyn where he spends his free time traveling, reading, and trying every sport that he can.
