Hi, I’m Jerry. Sometimes I write software, but mostly I just think about stuff. Sometimes I write my thoughts here.

I’m always open to conversations, about anything, seriously. I have an unending list of interests and I love learning about your point of view. Nobody’s taken me on this offer so far so if you’re reading this, try me. My gmail is personjerry@

Boring Stuff

I’m currently Head of Growth at Dendron, a Y Combinator company building a note-taking app for developers.

I also provide guidance to early-stage startups on high level strategy and product direction.

Previously I worked on machine learning at Facebook, fighting against harassment and child exploitation.

If you’re looking for my CV, please refer to my LinkedIn.
