Biography

I'm obsessed with algorithmic design, language learning and economics. I believe beautiful things begin with a rigorous, first-principles approach to design and engineering - and that change doesn't happen in one fell swoop. It happens gradually, piece by piece.

 

Nuanced conversation can begin when we understand each other. The intersection of my passions for algorithms and languages leads me to believe that the language learning and translation process can be greatly improved. Further, I think it is essential to global collaboration as we move into the 21st century.

 

In my reading, I focus on philosophy, history (to learn from the past), and science fiction (to look to the future). In my spare time, you'll find me rock climbing, competitive programming, playing the piano, or re-reading Dune.
