I am a staff software engineer at Google Fiber and in the past have worked on video infrastructure for Google/YouTube, where I was technical lead for the Emmy-award-winning parallel transcoding engine that delivered the 2012 Summer Olympics live over the Internet. Before that, I was a graduate student at UC Berkeley, finishing with a PhD in 2009 under the guidance of Michael Gastpar and Kannan Ramchandran; and, earlier still, an undergraduate at Cornell University, graduating in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering with guidance from Toby Berger. There were also some stimulating summers spent at AT&T Labs, the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), and the Broad Institute.

My writing sometimes veers into the realm of improvisational theater.

One of my most memorable experiences as a teacher was volunteering to teach geometry through San Quentin’s Prison University Project.

I’ve tried my hand at levitation.

I take safaris through concrete jungles.

I’ll occasionally wear shoes with clips on the soles.
