About

In my free time, I enjoy dogs, bikes, and making pistachio butter. On August 15, 2017, a savage choke in a new Jiu Jitsu class gave me a brain stroke. I have relearned many things.

At Molina Healthcare, I run a team that automates deploys of ~1000 apps and manages source code.

I apply less common algorithms to sometimes practical problems. The Go programming language made me love programming again.

At University of Arizona, I took a 1-on-1 class with Udi Manber on stringology. Udi went on to head search at Yahoo, Amazon, Google, and YouTube. From Robert E. Smith, I learned how to solve optimization problems using genetic algorithms.

At Microsoft Research, I worked on the Icon programming language with David R. Hanson. At Texas Instruments, I built compilers, assemblers, and debuggers for DSPs and microcontrollers. A few weeks after 9/11/2001, I started building radar systems for the Air Force used to pick up bin Laden.

PhD in computer science and MS in AI.
