I am an engineer who builds paradigm-shifting technology and leads others to do the same. I love using the enormity of the Internet to bring people together, whether as CTO of Obama for America, CTO at Threadless.com, or on my own projects. My current focus is helping build Modest, inc and work to define the future of commerce.

You can often find me playing with new technology, looking for something to hack, or enjoying life in Chicago with my amazing wife, Hiromi.
