Hello 👋
My next available slot is

  • Wednesday 22nd Dec4:30 PM (GMT)

After graduating UCLA with a dual computer science and electrical engineering degree, I decided to move on from research in photolithography. I began a career in the San Diego defense industry by updating tech stacks to be mobile web accessible, and I soon began running my own teams. Seeking a faster paced environment and wanting to support a mass user community I returned to the LA startup scene were I ran the engineering team at Victorious as VP of Engineering. Through an acquihire, I joined Headspace and have grown to Senior Director of Engineering running the Data, Platform, and ML/AI teams.
