I am buidling computer vision devoloper tools at Roboflow. This invovles leading a best-in-class machine learning team that is building automated machine learning solutions, implementing their surrounding APIs, and scaling them.

In a past life, I worked in quant trading and AI research.

In a future life, I am building a sabattical retreat academy.

I grew up spending most of my time outdoors and love nothing better than a day in the forest with friends.


I am a fan of steel manning, so, I have assembled a personal philosphy that is like a mansion with many rooms.

Here is a list of philosophical works that have influenced me. I made an effort to rank them in order of their influence.

  1. C.S. Lewis: Suprised By Joy
  2. Bertrand Russell: A History of Western Philosophy
  3. Eiji Yoshikawa: Musashi
  4. Oscar Wilde: The Picture of Dorian Gray
  5. Friedrich Nietzche: Beyond Good and Evil

Sabattical Retreat Academy

My life long goal is to start a non-profit sabbatical retreat academy, where intellectuals can complete a life's work thesis near the end of their careers. The SRA community will be cross-disiplinary and focused on integrating the beauty of nature and the formation of new knowledge.

If you have enjoyed my open source work, and the SRA excites you, please consider donating to it by sending Bitcoin to:
