about me

My name's Michael. I'm a Presidential Innovation Fellow working in Washington, DC.

Before that, I worked in Silicon Valley as a software engineer at a venture backed (Google Ventures, Goldman Sachs), early-stage fintech startup (DataFox).

My academic background is in Applied Math and Computer Science. Currently, I'm doing a lot with Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing, but I also love experimenting with web visualization. I'm an avid traveler and photographer.

I never want to stop learning new things, coming up with new ideas, and exploring new places. This site is an attempt to consolidate my hobbies in one place and encourage me to continue to build, be creative, and grow.
