My background

I'm a programmer, entrepreneur, speaker, designer, and trail runner among other things. As an engineer I've worked across the stack in backend, web, and mobile. I live and work in Los Angeles and studied at UCLA.

I'm currently an Engineering Manager working on feature development and engineering best practices alongside a great team at Tinder. I'm also an organizer of monthly meetups at the LA CTO Forum.

In 2015 I was featured in Inc.'s 30 under 30 for co-founding Enplug, a display software for teams and businesses.

You can find my work history on LinkedIn, or you can download my resume. I have a few projects on Github.
