About Me

I'm a software developer with startup experience, but have hit a rough patch lately. I'm planning on a PhD in Computer Science to research at the intersection of AI and disability. Ultimately, I want to help the world, but my career thus far has not gone in a direction that has allowed me to. Hopefully an employer here will give me that chance, but so far, private industry has remained uninterested.

I'm looking for
Respect. I've gotten none of that from private industry. Also a real commitment to diversity, beyond meaningless platitudes on a webpage. I also want to be paid fairly, since that's something no tech company does. I am sick and tired of performative nonsense from companies and I want one that is serious about solving problems.
