I maintain a collection of long-term notes on: Healthcare 🩺, Big Trees 🌳, Developer Resources 💻.

3 Year Startup Hiatus

Co-founder and CTO at Luminopia, where we were working to cure lazy eye (the team’s working on even more now!). Checkout some coverage of an early clinical trial we ran at BCH, a writeup by the Ophthalmologist, some SXSW coverage. Plus, The Crimson asked me for a brief statement and HBS wrote-up a case study on us, if that’s your thing.

College Kickoff

Woohoo! Fun college things! One of those fun college things was Datamatch, a website started in 1994 at Harvard where people fill out a questionaire and then are matched with their perfect soulmate on Valentine’s Day and given a free meal with them. I also worked with Harvard College Consulting Group, looking at user retention for a big 3 cable company, but it was severely lacking in romance.
