about: Currently working on the Facebook Open Source team. From React and React Native to PyTorch and RocksDB. Fun stuff for a polymath!

Previously, the founder of Parse (YC S2011), the best way to build a mobile app. We were acquired by Facebook in 2013 and had a few exciting years there.

Unfortunately, we shut down the hosted Parse service in January 2017. Fortunately, a lot of the Parse magic lives on as open source:

Before Parse, I founded Gamador (YC W2010). Millions of people have played Gamador's casual games.

Before that, I was a software engineer at Google working on search algorithms.

Before that, I was in grad school at Berkeley bouncing around between computational biology and AI.
