I envision, design, and develop innovative technologies & systems. In my career to date I’ve enjoyed software engineer, R&D scientist, and engineering manager roles, and have been fortunate to work at large high-tech companies, a startup, and a nonprofit research organization in Silicon Valley, in jobs oriented around AI technologies and challenges. I've also enjoyed teaching Computer Science courses on several occasions, at University of California, Santa Cruz. Prior to joining WMF, my work and publications at times dealt with, and were enabled by, Wikipedia and Wikidata.
I live in the San Francisco Bay area with my wife and our three cats. I love playing the piano (mostly classical), going to concerts, hiking, bicycling, and traveling.
I work on the m:Abstract Wikipedia project.
