About

I try to write the best guide ever written on every topic I'm interested in.

My approach:

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

When I'm done, I've published a book-quality guide that is concise and effective.

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, one of the most popular open source libraries. It's used by Samsung, Uber, WhatsApp, and thousands others. I authored 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 (1) videos (2) where I interviewed startup founders. I've also directed promo (1) videos (2) for Webflow (where I was the VP of Marketing). And, in college, I fooled around with (1) mock (2) TV spots. I plan to get better at my filmmaking hobby in 2018.
