On a co-op / gap year, in search of co-conspirators! Currently working on the future of homes at Bumblebee Spaces. Previously: engineering at Twitter, product and iOS at Microsoft, editorial at the Los Angeles Times, editing and reporting for a national award-winning student paper. I also co-founded/moderate subtle asian dating (500k+ members).

Driven by permutations of community, journalism, politics, entrepreneurship: I'm fascinated with processes/people, and the systems/community they take place in, and so social media and digital communities at large are so compelling to me.

I'm tangentially interested in the possibilities mixed reality and other liminal spaces that exist between between online/offline and digital/physical. Tangent-tangetially, curious about analogues (or not!) between organic, unpredictable, non-scaling systems, and computer systems.

My core convictions originate from time spent working on student publications dating back to high school, and two summers with the Los Angeles Times in the best city in the world (objective, neutral opinion).

Wherever I go, I hope to carry with me the humbling, humanizing, experiences that taught me about compassion, critical inquisitiveness, intention.

At WSU, I was involved within the university entrepreneurship ecosystem and mentored underclassmen in STEM (emphasis on tech), with a stint in software engineering research. I have such a soft spot for the Pacific Northwest and am so grateful for my time there.

Whew, thanks for coming to my TED talk! I'd love to talk further and learn more about you :)
