I optimize for impact. I strive to work with talented people to do amazing things. If you are a misfit, a rebel, or a troublemaker working on something interesting, feel free to send me a message.

I’m a researcher, engineer, and educator currently working on the future of conversational artificial intelligence as a senior machine learning scientist at Alexa AI.

I’m also building Confetti AI.

A few things I’m proud of:



  • I was the 8th hire at RideOS a Sequoia VC-backed autonomous mobility startup acquired by Gopuff.
  • I’m problem-driven (not tool-driven) so I build across the full engineering stack from hardware to software.


What Keeps Me Up These Nights

  • How do we prepare the next generation of artificial intelligence practitioners to be successful in their careers? Confetti AI is my ongoing answer.
  • Humans produce 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day. In that sea of noise, how do we find the stuff that really matters?
