About Me

In January 2010 my friend asked me to design a T-Shirt website for him, and since then I’ve spent a lot of time building reliable software. Here’s a list of stuff I’ve been working on.

I run my own software company. Before that, I worked at Twilio, Atlassian, and the Excel in Basketball Camp at De La Salle High School in Concord, CA.

I started this blog to give my friends and family an idea of what I’m reading and thinking about, to sharpen my thoughts, and to improve my own writing. I read plenty of books, papers, blogs and magazine articles, and this blog is an ideal place to share the things I am reading and thinking about.

I don’t play video games, and watch only the occasional TV show, but I spend about three hours a day reading. I funnel most communication into my email and Twitter.

My favorite charities are Givewell, GiveDirectly, and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

If you would like to get an update when I write a new post, consider using an RSS reader, or sign up to receive an email when I write something new. Send me an email here. If you want to read the same things I’m reading, you can download the list of RSS feeds I read (OPML). I’m also on Twitter.

I live in Belmont with my fiancée Laura, our cat Manu and our dog Wally.
