Brief Biographical Sketch:

I studied economics and sociology at Stanford (graduated in 2011), and have always been curious about the question of what makes people feel isolated, and what can we do about it?

For the past nine years, I've been working on technology products that help people connect both online an offline. I currently work on events, groups, and a secret new product at Facebook.
