My self-summary
I'd very much like our species to survive the next hundred years. We finally have the technology to begin spreading to the stars, but we also now have the all-too-easy ability to wipe ourselves from history.

If you feel the same, fantastic. We've got a wild ride ahead of us.
What I’m doing with my life
I founded a social virtual reality company here in the Bay Area and spend much of my time dreaming about the future of VR. When I'm not in the metaverse, you can find me at talks, festivals, and workshops.

The wonderful AuroraGC and I live together in a fantastic intentional community. If you've got a good talk to give, we've got a good audience.
I’m really good at
Having epic conversations, getting computers to do fun things, and being surrounded by fantastic people
The six things I could never do without
1. A main quest
2. Interesting housemates
3. Awesome colleagues
4. Forward-looking communities
5. Audiobooks
6. Festival adventures
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How virtual reality will redefine computation and society.
What we can do to reduce existential risk
When synthetic biology, artificial intelligence and other exponential technologies will take off in a big way
Where we need the effective altruism meme to take root
How science and rationality can drive morality
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a great conversation with new friends, brainstorming under the stars, or heading out on a random adventure.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There's very little I won't admit, but you'll have to ask!
You should message me if
If you would like to get to know me or my partner, or have interests that overlap with any of the above links (always happy to introduce people to new communities!)
