Before graduating from Harvey Mudd College and after interning in quant finance and big tech, I took a leave of absence from school to work at startups.

I joined Spatial and took ownership of much of the Series A VR startup's backend services, built new cloud integrations, forged new partnerships, and prototyped early GPT-3 powered features.

Then I joined OpenSea as one of its first 15 hires, led its early Trust and Safety engineering efforts and helped the scrappy basement-ran startup quickly scale to a 300-person, $13 billion company.

Today, I'm interested in leveraging artificial intelligence to build valuable, paradigm-shifting products. Hit me up on Twitter or by email!
