I'm a cofounder of Exversion -- GitHub for static datasets -- in addition to consulting for early-stage startups on product strategy, UX design, and front-end development. I also run a user experience meetup group called UX NY. Previously, I co-founded Flywheel (formerly known as Cabulous), which is changing the way you hail a cab and making ground transportation more efficient worldwide. Flywheel currently has over 30 employees and cabs in dozens of cities.
Beyond my day-to-day work, I'm also involved in the NYC startup community via DFJ Gotham Ventures and NYC Startup Weekend. I spend my spare time writing, bettering my dev skills, and dancing in my kitchen. I'm also fascinated by 3D printing, AI, life extension, and behavioral psych.
I care about products that transform large industries in meaningful, positive ways. My worldview is such: that the best software in the world is created through the lenses of psychology and anthropology; that only with deep knowledge of people's behaviors, motivations, and habits can anyone properly change the status quo.

In February, I teamed up with Toby Matejovsky and Alex Tandy to win the Doritos 5K prize at the Spotify Music Apps Hack Weekend for building Songjitsu, a music-based social game built on Spotify's API and modeled after Apples to Apples.
Last summer, I contributed to the White House blog in writing an article about Cabulous and the 100% capital gains tax cut.
In January, I won the the NJ Tech Meetup/SorinRoyerCooper web design competition. The new site is currently in production.
