Right now, I’m making language models be nice at OpenAI. Broadly, I’m interested in improving safety culture in AI, understanding what regulation looks like in times of change, and figuring out how to properly, maximally appreciate life.

Previously, I cofounded Chord (Neo ‘22) and was a student at Stanford. I live in the terrible and wonderful city of San Francisco.1 In my spare time, I like to read, write, and photo.

You might want to see my projects or tweets. If you have cool thoughts, know the fundamental causes of the 1970s Great Stagnation, or just want to reach out, don’t hesitate to contact me through e-mail or videophone.

  1. It’s mostly terrible.
