interaction engineering

Hello from the west coast!

My goal is to invent, design, and build delightful human interfaces at the edge of technological possibility. I prefer working on small, interdisciplinary teams, iterating quickly, releasing often, and working in the open. I gravitate to the web platform, but am also well versed in mobile development, audio-related technology, and lightweight hardware prototyping. My ideal role involves a mix of software engineering, UX design, and invention.

I have experience building speech interfaces, virtual reality, audio processing, the web platform, developer tools, rapid prototyping, interactive visualization, and user interface design. For the still curious, please see:

I have a Masters in Human Computer Interaction from Carnegie Mellon University, and a BSc (hon) in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of British Columbia. I was born in Leningrad, RSFSR, and spent my formative years in Vancouver, Canada.
