Deep Learning Systems

Currently, I'm building a secret thing with my friends.

I spend most of my time designing and implementing scalable Deep Learning systems.

Previously, I built cool stuff with folks at Cortex Labs, the Pressly backend team, and lead engineering at Ranomics.

The rest of my time I dedicate to publishing deep learning research with FOR.ai. While waiting for experiments to finish, I write tools to help researchers focus on research. I talk about some of my work here.
