I am an Engineering Manager at Twitch. Twitch is the world’s leading social video platform and community for gamers, video game culture, and the creative arts. I lead a team of talented Android and iOS developers to make the Twitch experience on mobile top-notch.

In the land before management, I was an Android Engineer at Twitch. Before that, I was an Android Engineer at Evernote – making a productivity tool used and loved by millions even better. And before Evernote I was a Mobile Engineer at Smule, where I split my time between Android and iOS development. I also led Smule’s world-class food and culture program.

I am an active member of the San Francisco Kendo Dojo and Stanford Kendo Club. I am an avid StarCraft 2 player (Protoss). I enjoy playing video games and listening to video game music. I am partial to JRPGs: my favorite series include the Valkyrie Profile, Nier, Grandia, Tales, Persona, and Xenoblade series. My favorite video game composer are Yasunori Mitsuda and Keiichi Okabe.

I received my B.S. in Computer Science at Princeton University, along with a certificate in Portuguese and Spanish Languages and Cultures. My senior thesis, advised by Dan Trueman, was titled Synchronization over Networks for Live Laptop Music Performance, and resulted in the creation of LOrkNeT.
