I’m a Software Engineer with a wide variety of technical interests and a rich professional background to match. My primary areas of interest include Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning, and Distributed Systems.

Presently, I am working on Document Understanding using Computer Vision (OCR) and NLP to extract, categorize, and validate data from business documents in order to automate enterprise workflows. Other projects that I lead and contribute to are listed on my resumé.

From 2011—2017, I was a member of the Siri team at Apple, where I worked on various AI systems that power the virtual personal assistant.

I used to work on the Kindle and Digital Platform at Amazon, designing and implementing large-scale, distributed, highly-available systems to service hundreds of millions of requests a day.

Before moving to Amazon, I worked at Microsoft for a little over five years in the SQL Server team on Object-Relational Mapping technologies, as well as in the Business Division on an application for Microsoft Office.
