I believe smart engineers and thoughtful designers can make technology comfortable to use. When we research, sketch, and coding with each other, we can build software that brings people together and put screens in the background. I do this kinda thing at Pivotal Labs.

My writing is about art, tasteful electronic music, the state of the media, and personal travels. I’m enthusiastic about yoga, konmari, and making things to wear with a single piece of fabric.
