My full-time job is getting kids excited about coding in 50+ cities, through events like CodeDay. For fun, I also produce Ignite Seattle.

In a past life, I worked directly in technology, including publishing some papers at Microsoft Research Machine Learning and Applied Statistics, and running a YC and venture-backed startup similar to Periscope (before Periscope).
