I’m a NYC-based full-time sector-
agnostic angel/seed investor in tech startups, including Wish, Heroku, 280N.


I just completed an entrepreneur in residence at Benchmark Capital in San Francisco. Before that, I led Twitter’s New York engineering office and managed a number of consumer engineering projects including Moments. Previously, I was CEO and founder of Mitro, a startup that exited to Twitter,
and an engineer at Google from
2002-2009 where I built a number of distributed systems and infrastructure systems.

I often write articles. For instance, I fixed a Linux kernel bug in the veth drive, I discovered that NYC’s Taxi and Limousine Commission released improperly anonymized taxi logs, and I analysed how employees collaborated across sites at Twitter.


I’m very interested in data privacy, machine learning, telepresence, and distributed systems. Please email me
