About These days I’m writing Coding is the Real World, a book to bridge the gap between writing code in school and writing code in industry.
Previously, I was the lead developer on Burner at Ad Hoc Labs. There I developed the Android application, which got some nice press, and productionised the backend, where I increased test coverage from 0 to over 90%. Before that, I co-founded ReadyUp!, worked for almost five years at Google on enterprise search and Google Docs, and earned a BS and MS in computer science from UCLA.
I’m also a founding volunteer of Project:Possibility, through which I’ve mentored hundreds of college students writing software to improve the lives of the physically disabled
