A Few Things About Me

I currently live in DC, building the engineering team at Morning Consult .

Studying computer science with Oz and Myles at Bradfield was by far the best learning experience I've ever had.

Previously: I studied history and anthropology in college, lived in France and Lebanon instead of looking for jobs, taught Algebra in Jacksonville, discovered the startup world while crashing on couches, wrote my way out of an empty bank account, and danced a lot along the way.

A friend recently described me as having an affinity for chaos. So I've been building habits and structure to prevent the monkey from taking full control.

I use this blog to process and reflect on the limits of large systems and how small things have a surprisingly strong will to survive. Hope you enjoy.
