About

I live with my wife in Seattle, Washington. We enjoy reading in cafes or a quiet bar, walking the Earth, strength training, and observing trees and other plants.

Professional info

I currently write code for fun and profit. In the past I worked as a software engineer at Adaptive Biotechnologies and on the Beacon team at Epic.

When it comes to software, I value reliability, performance, clarity, and frugality. Although the world is full of broken, slow, overcomplicated, and outright user-hostile software, despairing about state of things won’t help anyone. So I do my best to be pragmatic, get things done, and improve the situation where I can.

Before working in the software industry, I studied probability and stochastic processes at the University of Wisconsin, where I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics under Benedek Valkó. Math is great!
