Some background— I was born and raised in Orange County, California. I have a B.S. with Honors in Science, Technology, & Society from Stanford and an M.S. in Information & Computer Science from the Informatics Department at UC Irvine. Over the years, I’ve worked to improve the user experience at Pinterest, Amazon, and Facebook.
The academic publications that have most influenced my thinking to date are:
- “Steel Axes for Stone Age Australians”
- “Designing for Slowness, Anticipation and Re-visitation: A Long Term Field Study of the Photobox”
- The phylogeny of The Canterbury Tales
In my free time, I enjoy reading, karaoke, and analyzing social interaction to death. Above is a picture of me with a coconut.
