This site features a selection of projects and experiments that I’ve worked on recently.

About myself – I am a first year PhD student in the LSD lab at UC Santa Cruz. I am broadly interested in distributed systems and the abstractions we use to build them. Previously, I spent a few years as a software engineer and musician in NYC.

I lead a small engineering team at Impossible Effort, where we are building a new social tool for organizing and archiving community events. I also record and produce music as Nuns Honey - have a listen!
