I'm a software engineer in Seattle, Washington. My interests are mobile, machine learning, and human-computer interaction. I currently work for AmazonLocal as a mobile engineer. Previously, I spent three years working for a VoIP startup and learned a lot about how hard it is making truly highly available software.
I graduated from Georgia Tech with degrees in Chemistry and Computer Science. In between I worked as a researcher at PulseNet in the Centers for Disease Control.
For fun I like to race track bikes.
Do you like Huey Lewis and the News? Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far much more bitter, cynical sense of humor. In '87, Huey released this, Fore, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is Hip to be Square, a song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should, because it's not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it's also a personal statement about the band itself.
