I love creating experiences. Sometimes they educate.
I studied both Computer Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Western Ontario & McGill. I spent some time in the consulting industry doing algorithm design using probabilistic and graph theoretic techniques.
I joined Khan Academy Jan 2012 – with 20 or so amazing people. I eventually developed lessons on Cryptography, Information Theory, Science Discoveries, Math Warmups and experimented with narrative driven challenges. I co-produced some lessons with content partners such NASA, Google and Disney.
Starting in 2014 I co-created Pixar in a Box alongside Tony DeRose (short CBC interview or long Podcast) and a handful of others. It is an initiative to create free interactive courses which demonstrate how concepts (math, science, art & writing) are used in the filmmaking process at Pixar. Think of it as an interactive behind the scenes featurette.
In 2017 I began a collaboration with IEEE to communicate the ideas behind key academic papers. (link coming soon).
In Jan 2017 I became more involved in some investments in the bitcoin/blockchain sector.
