I'm from a town in Washington State known for it's bike racks and hops (Yakima), and coincidentally, I love to mountain bike and discover new delicious beers. I went to undergrad in Vancouver, BC (UBC) and grad school in Monterey, CA (MIIS). I was in the Peace Corps in Albania from 2010-2012, where I met my wife and learned that you need to boil milk before you drink it. I moved to the Bay Area in 2012 and call Oakland my home. I've worked in digital marketing and product management for the past five years, which has given me an outlet for tinkering and learning new things.
