I make stuff with code.
Currently working @confluent.
Previously, I worked on StraightUp/Lextile, trying to help people get more out of the news. Earlier, I spent too many years on my C.S. Ph.D. at Stanford, working with Phil Levis and the SING group on a scalable virtual world platform called Sirikata. Before that I did my C.S. undergrad at U.Va. and did some research with David Luebke and Greg Humphreys in the Computer Graphics Group.
I also write here. Here are a few recent posts:
