This blog lies at the intersection of technology and human interaction. I write about:

  • How to land a job at your dream tech company
  • How engineers can best communicate with other people

I’m a software engineer who’s been programming since 2009. Currently, I work at Google.

During my time at the University of Texas, I interned at Calxeda, Multimedia Games, and Infusion. The CS Internship Guide is based on my and other students’ experiences.

Besides spending quality time with a terminal, I enjoy lifting weights, reading, boxing, cooking, baking, history podcasts, and losing board games.
