I'm interested in a lot of different things, including:

  • Solving problems and creating useful things
  • Figuring out how people's minds work, especially language/communication
  • Cooking, eating, growing plants, and not wasting food
  • Education/teaching
  • Making people's lives better
I studied cognitive science and computer science at MIT, and worked for a few years as a text analytics software engineer at Luminoso. I spent one year growing vegetables at Drumlin Farm, and now I'm at Ricult working on giving smallholder farmers better access to useful information.
