Hello! I'm a human being residing in Menlo Park, California. I've decided that my purpose in life is to amplify human capability and raise standards, so that's what I try to spend most of my time doing.

To that end, I've worked at Facebook for the last 6 years. These days, I'm focused on building tools for Group admins, who are the heart and mind of any thriving and meaningful Facebook Group.

Previously, I started and led the Core App UI team at Facebook, where we built design and engineering infrastructure to make Facebook feel more cohesive and simultaneously make our product teams more efficient. We also redesigned much of News Feed, commenting, and navigation patterns.

When I joined Facebook, I helped ship the first native iOS app shortly before tech-leading a product called Paper, which was an ambitious new way to use Facebook on the iPhone.

I'm an Objectivist, and attribute most of my own happiness to the way I've integrated philosophy into both my daily life and the big picture. In my spare time, I read, drive and obsessively detail sports cars, and go for long, ambling walks through California's grandeur.
