Some background— I’m originally from 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.
A few publications that were influential in my early academic years:
- “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.
