Hello there! I am a product manager at eBay in the beautiful Bay Area, where I make software with super talented designers and engineers. I have a master's degree in Information Systems from the University of Utah. I crave travel and I enjoy documenting what I experience, like here.
Live now in the UK for hundreds of thousands of users, the HelpBot is a product backed by a machine learning-based natural language understanding engine to take care of issues on the member’s behalf. For instance, users can submit returns, get refunds, or have disputes with sellers adjudicated without even having to leave the page.
A couple thoughts on process weight.
Newport got in my head. I haven’t been able to stop pondering all the small interruptions that cause me to repeatedly switch my mental context while I’m trying to focus.
A jaunt through Denmark, Sweden, and Norway
I'm pretty good with Python, Node, Angular, Unix, SQL and database theory, and I'm versed in machine learning concepts.
I'm a huge fan of beer-brewing, hiking, backpacking, skiing, rock-climbing and most anything outdoors. I also love to write, read, and talk philosophy/politics.
Check out my blog here for my thoughts on travel, tech, music, and politics.
