A few weeks ago, I moved to San Francisco and started work at The Bay Citizen. Before coming here, I was a grad student in nuclear engineering at the University of Michigan. Between semesters, I spent a summer living in the East Bay and working at Lawrence Livermore National Lab. I loved it here--camping in Big Sur, weekends in San Francisco, hiking in Yosemite. Ever since that summer, I knew I'd live here again someday.

The nuclear gig didn't last--what I really wanted to do was build tech and work on computing problems. After a year-long hiatus backpacking around Latin America, recharging and rethinking, it was time to come back to the Bay and make that happen.

At The Bay Citizen, I'm excited to be working for a news outlet that really cares about the vibrant communities here and telling their stories. As a programmer, it's a real joy to work toward this end. A news org that prioritizes the use of data to tell compelling stories? Awesome.

Not only is this news team committed to serving the Bay Area, but to helping in-depth, local journalism become sustainable and repeatable elsewhere. I look forward to contributing to this newsroom's development and to the new frontiers of high-tech journalism.
