a bit about me now

Sometimes I ramble about things.

Working on something ✨ new ✨.

a bit about my past

I was Head of Data at Huckleberry, helping build an end-to-end insurance company that uses a modern technology stack and novel applications of data science to improve the cost and efficiency of a typically expensive and slow process.

For fun, I and talented designer/good friend Ian built a simple service to automatically calculate and carbon offset your ride-shares.

For a little bit, I was a senior software engineer and manager at Quid building key infrastructure and services to make it easier for our clients to search, analyze, and visualize the world’s collective intelligence.

From 2012-2016, I was the co-founder & CTO of a sustainability startup. We had the grand vision of becoming the data engine that will power the sustainable economy.

We went through 500 Startups and Code for America accelerators.

From the time period of 2010-2014, I was a Ph.D student at the University of California, San Diego.

Where I am

My focus was a combination of human computation, computer vision and machine learning. Despite that my interests cover everything from human-computer interaction and computer graphics to astronomy and astrophysics!

A lot of my free time was spent hacking away at various side projects, adventuring, or simply enjoying the fantastic weather that blesses the San Diego biome.
