The site is here to share a bit about who I am, and to help stay in touch with old friends and new.
I was homeschooled in upstate NY before living 10 years in the Bay Area. There I worked as a Software Engineer at such exciting companies as AirBnB, Leap Motion, and Stripe. Along the way, I picked up an enduring passion for rock climbing 🧗♂️, and recently a new passion for playing the fiddle 🎻.
As of Nov 2022 I am taking the next year to maximize my impact in removing co2 from our atmosphere. I’ll be describing my work in the blog as I go.
Please enjoy the reading list, and use the contact page to grab a slot to chat about whatever’s on your mind.
Finally, a quote which I find inspires me on a regular basis.
The Man In the Arena
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
