Hi, I’m Jerry. Sometimes I write software, but mostly I just think about stuff. Sometimes I write my thoughts here.

I’m always open to conversations, about anything. No, seriously. I’d love to learn what you’re interested in. Nobody’s taken me on this offer so far so if you’re reading this, try me. My gmail is personjerry@

Boring Stuff

Currently I’m working on an AI mediator to help families communicate better - I think it’s important we feel happy and comfortable talking with our families.

Most recently I was Head of Growth at Dendron, a Y Combinator company building a note-taking app for developers.

I mentor and consult for mid-size companies on AI-related high level strategy and product direction.

Previously I worked on machine learning at Facebook, fighting against harassment and child exploitation.

If you’re looking for my CV, please refer to my LinkedIn.

Fun Stuff

In 2021 I started traveling again. My current voyage has taken me to Honolulu, Puerto Vallarta, Valencia, London, Zagreb, Split, Varna, Ponta Delgada, Praia, Oaxaca, New York, San Francisco, San Juan (Puerto Rico), Medellin, Lima, Cuzco, Buenos Aires, Antarctica, back to Lima, Mexico City, and Toronto.

As of June 2024 I’m working on some projects in Waterloo, Canada.
