Welcome to my world. I’m a product manager who finds out what products need to be made, and make sure they’re built to delight and satisfy customers. I work well with customers and with data, and know how to use the latter to satisfy the former.
One of my best products is Transparent Concept Search, which is one of the few machine learning tools allowed to be used in the electronic discovery legal field. You can read how I created it here. I was also the engineering manager that put the first Metaverse on the internet: WorldsAway.
My poem “The Other Day the Saucers Came“, which is a reply to Neil Gaiman’s poem “The Day the Saucers Came”, was published in the December 2021 issue of Fantasy Magazine. I tweeted about it, and @neilhimself said he liked it.
My story, “A Bayesian Theory of Wishes“, was published in the Winter 2021/ Issue #2 of new sff magazine ParSec, edited by Ian Whates.
I’m featured in a Washington Post article and video about testing autonomous cars!
I’m married to longtime British writer Chaz Brenchley.
I have a Masters degree in computer science, and have lived and worked in Silicon Valley my entire professional life. I led the engineering team that put the first metaverse on the Internet, and most recently have designed data science and AI features that help lawyers search through millions of emails to try to find the smoking gun.
I’ve also been a lifelong geek – science fiction, comic books, Star Trek, the works. I was the first person in line in my hometown for the first showing of Star Wars. I used to go to Comic-Con back when it was just about comic books. So of course I also started writing science fiction and fantasy.
