Some highlights from my life ...

[2018-Q4]
Joined Curology
We’re hiring!
[2018-Q4]
Got a bike with gears
Still have my trusty one-speed commuter, but decided to upgrade for longer rides. Unfortunately the upgrade also came with spandex shorts.
[2017-Q1]
Joined Argive
Doubled down on software development after dabbling for a while.
[2017-Q1]
Learned how to (actually) swim
Realized you have to slow down to go faster. There’s a shower thought in there somewhere.
[2017-Q1]
Moved back to the Bay Area
- Menlo Park, to be exact. After the chaos of New York, it was actually quite nice. Then I got bored and moved back to San Francisco.
[2016-Q3]
Traveled around for a bit
After a startup exit, I wasn't sure what to do next. So I stalled by wandering around Europe and Asia.
[2016-Q3]
Ran a marathon
Glad I did it, but not in a rush to enter another one - except for maybe NYC.
[2014-Q3]
Joined Matter
It's true what they say: a day at an early-stage startup is a month anywhere else.
[2014-Q2]
Moved to New York City
Something about living there in your early 20s.
[2013-Q2]
Joined management consulting
Opened my first dataset that crashed Excel. Got really good at deck-making and bag-packing.
[2013-Q2]
Moved to San Francisco
Lucked out with a place two blocks south of the Lyon Street steps.
[2013-Q2]
Got a B.A. in Political Science
Thought I was going to law school, but realized I did not want to be a lawyer. Therefore, I did not go to law school.
[2012-Q3]
Worked in São Paulo, Brazil
Funded and advised social enterprises. Tried to learn Brazilian Portuguese, but settled with Portuñol.
[2011-Q4]
Studied abroad in Santiago, Chile
Discovered avocado toast before it was cool. Also, climbed mountains and spoke Spanish. Did some studying too.
[2010-Q3]
Volunteered in Quito, Ecuador
Partnered with a local children’s foundation. Also, ate way too many deep-fried, burrito-sized, dollar-a-piece empanadas.
[2009-Q3]
Moved to Stanford
Got off the Caltrain and walked the wrong way down University Ave for a good five blocks.
[2006-Q3]
Left the country for the first time
- on a whirlwind, hyper-supervised bus tour of Europe. 3/10 would recommend to a friend.
[1991-Q3]
Was born
In sunny Los Angeles. Say what you want, but we have the best food.
