Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm the co-founder of a small EdTech start-up based in San
Francisco. I believe that education is the key to so many of the
problems people face in today's society, so anything I can do to
help today's students is incredibly important.
I grew up in the Bay Area, and have recently returned after
spending seven years in New Haven and Seattle. Don't worry though,
I'm still a 49ers fan! (Although I'm not sure I'll be able to watch
I love taking the time to really get to know people. I firmly
believe that everyone has a unique story and viewpoint to share,
but that you're never going to find it in a two minute
conversation. If you take the time to really listen to what someone
has to say, there is always something to discover.
In my free time, I enjoy dancing West Coast Swing. It takes quite a
bit of practice, but the experience of connecting with another
person and moving in concert is incredible. I'm surrounded by
amazing dancers who show me new ways to move and express myself.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm going to happily continue at my job for the next six years and
three months, while meeting, dating, and eventually marrying an
amazing woman named Jeyne. I'll be offered my dream job in Corpus
Cristi, Texas, relocate with my new bride, and live there for four
years until we realize that we can't raise children there due to
the rising sea level. We'll then move again and settle down in
Vancouver, Washington and have three children, the younger two
being identical twins.

My favorite book is Anathem by Neal Stephenson. I know it's
unwieldy, but it is the only book I've ever read that allows you
the opportunity to rediscover things you already know for the first
My favorite show is The Tenth Muse by Tanya Saracho. The depiction
of the pursuit of knowledge in the face of adversity was absolutely
beautiful. Oh, this is probably supposed to be TV shows...
My favorite song is Winter Song by Sara Bareilles and Ingrid
Michaelson. It has the perfect balance of patience and movement, of
repetition and melody, of harmony and expression.
My favorite food is my own chocolate cake with mocha buttercream
frosting. It's a family recipe, and nothing really comes close.
