Dreaming, wandering, and laughing
  • Seeking truth in paradoxes, beauty in the everyday, and connection in the unknown.
  • How do we create a society that empowers creation and facilitates understanding?
  • How might we embed intimacy, playfulness, and creative expression in our browsing experience?
Engineer by study, creator at heart in San Francisco πŸŒ‰
I care about how we can give users more agency in the software they use or are used by every day and exploring what a healhy relationship with technology looks like.
Sometimes reading, sometimes writing, other times taking photos, and often eating. I also enjoy experimenting with fashion, dancing, and being in nature.
Currently working to empower people to collaborate and create @ Coda. Previously @ Airbnb, Square, RiceπŸ¦‰
I'm always looking to learn about different perspectives and jam with curious people. Say hi πŸ‘‹ (Twitter, email)
