Kirt Debique is originally from Trinidad, off the coast of Venezuela. He came to the states to study computer engineering, at the University of Miami. On the way to attending grad school at Stanford, he did an internship at Microsoft. After being offered a full time job there, he took it – and subsequently, never made it to Stanford. He started out in a role on the OS team, but after spending 20 years at the company, he did many types of roles, including general manager over several different divisions.
He loves to play soccer, and dabbles in chess. Above all, he loves his first born son, who recently celebrated his first birthday. He and his wife are enjoying the spoils of parenthood. Also, and to know surprise given his most recent ventures, he loves music – listening to music, making music, and helping artists.
When he left Microsoft, he found himself deeply involved with people in the music community in Seattle. He had seen the independent scene go through much disruption, and decided to help artists by starting a label. Through the label, he saw the gaps in the music industry, and set out to try and fill those gaps.
