I’m interested in 'systems' and interfaces.

I live in San Francisco. I am currently supported by ⭐️Dynamicland, Bret Victor’s lab, which is part of Y Combinator Research. Dynamicland is building a new kind of computer system.

In addition, I am the creator of ⭐️Screenotate, a tool for macOS and Windows which captures the text and context of every screenshot you take.
