About Me

I am currently a Sr. Partner Engineer at Affirm where I get to combine my technical and people skills to help create simple, transparent, and inclusive financial products.

I graduated from UC Berkeley with a major in Cognitive Science (concentration in Computational Modeling and Data Science). I love combining my business, data science, and software engineering skills to solve complex problems for people and businesses. In my free time, I enjoy martial arts, spending time with friends and family, and working on side projects. I am curiously passionate and passionately curious.

I am passionate about helping engineers find fulfilling careers. Happy to answer questions about tech and startups, do resume reviews, help with applications, find great companies, etc. If you are interested, please reach out:
