About Me

I'm a professional software engineer in San Francisco, currently working on Beautiful Slides. Previously, I've worked on a financial trading platform with Mirror Labs, and a leading cloud data warehouse platform with Birst. Outside of work, I like to hang out with my husky, ski, hike, bicycle, make music, listen to music, and enjoy the finer things.
