Applied AI Engineer @ Google Cloud. Writer, Coder, Maker, Napper.
I’m an Applied AI Engineer at Google but sometimes I think my title should be “Professional Prototyper.” I help people in all sorts of industries understand how machine learning can solve problems, and I help Google build tools to make ML innovation as easy as possible.
Before this gig, I worked in Google Research on Natural Language Processing for Google News. And before that, I worked as a software engineer and data scientist at the online dating site OkCupid, where we used math to find people love. I’ll always have a soft spot for that job, because it’s where I met my love. But also, it also scarred me for life.
Before OkCupid, I studied Computer Science at Princeton. It was kind of a grind, but I did get to hang out with Brian Kernighan, inventor of “Hello, world,” and catch rare glimpses of the late John Nash. Happy to be graduated, but I do miss the 2 A.M. hoagies.
