about me

My name is Michael. I work at NVIDIA, building AI infrastructure with a focus on the software that brings it all together.

Previously, I was a Presidential Innovation Fellow in Washington, DC, where I created a clinical trials search API for the National Cancer Institute and the search interface for Code.gov.

Before that, I worked in Silicon Valley as the first engineer at a venture backed (Google Ventures, Goldman Sachs), early-stage fintech startup called DataFox, which was bought by Oracle in 2018.

My academic background is in Applied Math and Computer Science, but I'm a full stack engineer, comfortable with pretty much any topic from DevOps to Genetic Algorithms.

Outside of work, I'm an avid traveler and photographer. This site is a place for me to share my art and personal projects.
