About

I live in Northern Virginia, a suburb of Washington, D.C. This summer, I’ll be in San Francisco working on software in a space I’m really excited about.

  • I spend my days thinking about education, software, cities, funding research, and how people sort knowledge.
  • I’m trying to compile a list of the 500 most important innovations and how they happened (add suggestions here).
  • I also co-run a community for young people interested in science and tech (if you’re in high school or college and want to join, DM me!)

Previously, I analyzed vehicle accident and crash statistics at UD Platforms, and ran marketing and communications at The Tardigrade Group, a startup incubator for young founders.
