I write software here in San Francisco. My day-to-day life goes like this: I code, I lift weights, I read books. I co-founded my first company in 2004 after graduating from MIT and have since co-authored more than 40 peer-reviewed articles on advanced materials for high-performance computing and the Internet of Things. In 2015-2016 I direct undergraduate student activities for IEEE in the 12 western U.S. states. I fence, shoot pistols, and know Latin. In college I was the High Priestess for the Campus Crusade for Cthulhu and have the medieval heavy weaponry to prove it (it’s sitting next to the rake and the broom in the utility closet).
