I drink coffee, climb rocks, play go, and read books. I research and use tools for that improve my thinking, productivity, and life in general. I strive to reduce friction in my life, keep things minimal, and simplify. Sometimes I write.

I work for the Machine Intelligence Research Institute (MIRI), a non-profit that researches the fundamental mathematics behind machine intelligence and works to ensure future improvements in machine intelligence work out well for humans.
