programming, music, design

I enjoy building products to make life and work better.

I'm a student of user-first, design-centric product development. Every pixel counts. I've learned how hard and necessary it is to pull things out. Tools and process should never be self-serving. Always focus on the output and the challenge you set out to solve.

In my free time I'm building web applications with Node.js, playing music, and riding bike in Oakland.
