Hey there ....

I am an alumnus of the Computer Science department (graduated 2001) at Stanford University, and the Stanford Center for Professional Development.

Currently I am working on my own startup, ConciergeBot, an artificially intelligent virtual assistant for vacation rental guests and owners. Check it out!

On August 12th, 2015, I atteneded the White House LGBTQ Summit in Washington, DC. Read my interview with eBay about it.

I also rent my condo in Palm Springs on Airbnb if you're interested (and I just became a Superhost).

Here's my LinkedIn profile if you want to know more about me.

One of the most rewarding experiences of my Stanford career was my time spent abroad. I participated in both the Stanford in Berlin program in Germany and the Stanford in Kyoto program in Japan. While at Stanford, I founded the Queer University Employees at Stanford(QUEST), and also started the Lambda Particles, a support/social group for LGBT persons and their allies at SLAC. I also founded the Stanford Queer Engineers and Scientists(SQUEAS) while I was still a student. I was also very active in the Stanford Society of Chicano/Latino Engineers and Scientists(SSCLES).
