I studied computer science and physics at Carnegie Mellon University, though I left to work at a startup before finishing my degree.
I have worked as a professional software developer since 1995. I built large parts of the customer review system used on which manages tens of millions of reviews, and built a patented algorithms for the selection of which reviews to build. I have worked at startups on analytical tools made to visualize millions of textual documents, later used to help score loan applications for large financial institutions. More recent work has been more geared towards mobile applications, both on smartphone platforms such as Android and iOS as well as simple SMS based applications. My current company Nyaruka primarily builds SMS data collections tools for the East African market.
