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.
GTD is very compelling, but I’ve found it difficult to implement well. This is a piece intended for other people who find themselves in the same situation: Eager to use Allen’s system and all of the benefits that it promises (less stress, a state of always working on the most important thing, more consistency, etc.), but looking for a good digital setup and a demonstration of the workflow.
A couple thoughts on process weight.
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.
