I'm a computer scientist with over 10 years of experience in software engineering. I currently work as the VP of Engineering at Force Therapeutics where I have a hand in all things related to the technology. I was previously the lead developer at Savored which was acquired by Groupon. Before relocating to New York, I spent several years in Silicon Valley where I had the opportunity to work in the startup scene. I received my B.S. in Computer Science from The University of Texas at Austin. When I'm not writing code I enjoy writing music.
Fun Fact: I wrote my first computer program on the Atari 400 using BASIC when I was a kid.
I love all things computer science, math, physics, and philosophy. In particular I love musing about the impacts of Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, the Singularity, and the Simulation hypothesis. Some of my heros include Alan Turing, Carl Sagan, Bertrand Russell, Ludwig Wittgenstein, and Albert Einstein (who I named my cat after).
I also enjoy good philosophical science fiction, particuarly in the cyberpunk genre. Philip K Dick is my favorite author responsible for Blade Runner (Do Androids Dream...), Minority Report, A Scanner Darkly, The Man in the High Castle, Ubik, etc. Some other books, tv/films, and videogames I like include 2001: A Space Oddessey, Dune, A Clockwork Orange, The Matrix, Ghost in the Shell, Cowboy Bebop, Akira, Contact, Arrival, Ex Machina, Westworld, Mr. Robot, Black Mirror, Metal Gear Solid, Half Life, Deus Ex, etc. I also love plays like Harold Pinter's No Man's Land and Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot.
