about me

I grew up in Auburn, California where I was introduced to lots of things that I’m into today, like climbing, computers, music, movies, and people.

I learned more about computers at UCLA and then moved up to San Francisco where I spent a few years working on cloud infrastructure at Stripe.

I’m in Oakland now, working at Arcol, building the future of architecture software and making the power of computer-aided design accessible to more people.

I try to spend my free time slacklining, climbing, listening to music (the last song I listened to was Farewell to Clemency - Live by The Murlocs), making music, reading, writing, and watching movies (the last movie I watched was Challengers).

about this website

This is mostly a place for me to share things that I write, but it’s also home to some little projects of mine, like this page that lists my favorite albums or this list of links that I think are cool.

I’ve written about how I build and manage this site here.
