Follow my journey!

Teacher

I help people grow. Get in touch.

Be creative

I teach language for fostering creativity, seeing differently, and generating new types of ideas. I've exposed some of these thoughts through my generative art website.

Be aware

Insight into your mind can help you cope with adversity, align you with your values, and expand your capacity to pursue what matters. I've cultivated lenses and explored consciousness practices for skillfully moving forwards.

Be kind

I believe that deep alignment between personal values and action is the bedrock for a beautiful life. By fostering compassion we can manifest joyful and pro-social impacts upon the world.

Journey

I've come a long way

Software Engineer

I've worked at Asana.com, consulted for several AI startups, and was most recently at Google working on performance tooling for custom AI hardware. I like making tools to empower people, but am skeptical of corporate intentions.

Game Designer

In 2014 my good friend Benjamin and I and produced a board game called Block Party. We raised funds, produced it, sold copies, and donated hundreds to math teachers and programs. I also continue to carry a set around and create new games with it.

Artist

In 2013 I wrote a novel exploring art and technology. Every now and then I'll draw portraits. I've also made some mobile puzzle games, but they're no longer supported. For the past 2.5 years I've been playing a very obscure Chinese zither. I love to express almost as much as I love to know.
