About Me

I'm Scott, a Bay Area native, tea connoisseur, and turtle enthusiast. Currently, I'm a software engineer at Lyft, returning after completing my M.S. at UC Berkeley. In the past, I've also had the pleasure of working at other amazing companies like Rubrik and Brilliant.

I'm passionate about designing thoughtful solutions to complex problems. My academic and industry interests include artificial intelligence (machine learning, computer vision), business intelligence (marketing technology, business infrastructure, large-scale logistics), and intersecting technology and education. I fill my free hours by sipping tea, enjoying unique video games, climbing rocks, and trying new restaurants.
