Hi, I'm Josh Wulf. I'm married and live in Brisbane, Australia with my wife Param and our son Prahlad. Prahlad has had Type 1 Diabetes since he was 8 years old. He's now a healthy and happy teenager (15 years old).
I watched Prahlad go through primary school struggling to have the conversation with his friends and classmates about his condition. When his teacher asked me to come in and talk to the class when another classmate was diagnosed with T1D I really noticed how little understanding is out there for these children and how isolated they are, even while surrounded by friends.
I also saw Prahlad's friends wanted to support him, but didn't know how to. And their helpful ignorance showed up for Prahlad as an annoyance, rather than the contribution that they wanted it to be.
From 2004 - 2014 I helped build the world's first billion dollar open source software engineering company, Red Hat. I grew up playing and programming Atari games in the 1980s.
I'm committed to a future without Type 1 Diabetes, and that children and families living with it now have the experience of freedom, joy, and power.
