Hi, I'm Jacob.

I’m originally from Portland, Oregon, and I'm a senior in Computer Science and Political Science at Yale.

Right now, I’m TAing CS276, writing two theses, and occasionally developing a few projects.

I'm also a sporadic, but enthusiastic writer—I've written about the national parks, living in a tent for three months, the college admissions process, and people doing amazing things in New Haven and beyond. Follow me on Medium for more writing, and definitely more em dashes.

Some cool things I've done:

  • Ran polls across the country for progressive candidates and groups with Change Research

  • Developed integrated hardware and software (full-stack in the truest sense of the term) at Uncorked Studios

  • Spent a summer in Yosemite, bussing tables at Priest Station and roaming around the Sierras

  • Served as a TA at Yale's School of Management, teaching MBA students about software development

  • Worked on MANY, a project for the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale redefining the relationship between displaced people and their hosts

  • Appeared on America’s Greatest Makers (though I dispute the title)
