About

I work at Glisten AI, where we're building AI to categorize and tag product data. Previously I did software engineering at MemSQL, MobLab, and Bloomberg. I graduated from MIT with a degree in computer science and math. There, I did computer systems research at CSAIL in the Supertech Group, directed Code for Good, and helped organize HackMIT.

I live in San Francisco, but am originally from Tucson, Arizona. My family is from Hiroshima, Japan and Alberta, Canada.
