About Me

I'm an obsessive person with interests ranging from software development to meditation & yoga, from climbing to philosophy, from studying chess to playing the piano. I love exploring new interests and experiencing successes and failures alike. Currently, I'm co-running a freelance dev shop focused on web and app development. Our current projects are geared towards generating passive income to allow us time to explore other areas. I have a particular interest in AI safety and alignment, and have been involved with EA community and 80,000 hours to explore this realm and future endeavors.

Current Work
Tabler - Current / In Progress
This software is very niche to the poker world, but it was a program I used as a player for many years until it went unmaintained. We garnered support from roughly 100 community members to rebuild the software from scratch, using a variety of languages, technologies, and techniques to bring this tool back to poker players. Combines front-end desktop app development, with win32 specific screen grabbing, fully managed by websocket connections and platform-specific python, nodejs, and c++ scripts
