About

I try to write the best handbooks ever written on each topic I'm interested in.

My approach:

In short, when something strikes me as overwhelming but worthwhile, I figure out how to make it easy for everyone. That's what excites me.

Once I'm done, I've published a book-quality guide that is more concise and effective than what you'd find on bookshelves. And it's free.

Founder

I started NameLayer, a domain name company that sold premium domains to startups and Fortune 500's. After NameLayer's launch, I wrote the guide that startups often consult when choosing a name. NameLayer was acquired by Techstars to help name their startups.

Engineer

I made Velocity — a popular open source library. It's used by Samsung, Uber, WhatsApp, and thousands of others. I published a book on it through Pearson. I was also awarded the Stripe grant, with which I made Libscore. I was interviewed about it here and here.

Filmmaker

directed⁺ videos⁺ where I interviewed startup founders. I've also directed promo⁺ videos⁺ for Webflow (where I was VP of Marketing). Also, in college, I fooled around with mock⁺ TV spots⁺! I plan to get better at my filmmaking hobby in 2018.
