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 love learning about your point of view. Nobody’s taken me on this offer so far so if you’re reading this, try me. My gmail is personjerry@

Boring Stuff

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

I provide guidance to early-stage startups on 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

Then I spent 2016 traveling the world, visiting Paris, Nice, London, Amsterdam, Liege, Berlin, Vienna, Prague, Bratislava, Budapest, Belgrade, Bucharest, Valencia, Shanghai, Suzhou, Chengdu, Siem Reap, Bangkok, Luang Prabang, Sydney, Melbourne, and Cairns.

In 2021 I started traveling again. My current itinerary has been Honolulu, Puerto Vallarta, Valencia, London, Zagreb, Split, Varna, Ponta Delgada (Azores), Praia (Cape Verde), Oaxaca (Mexico), New York, San Francisco, San Juan (Puerto Rico).

As of September 2023 I’m still in Puerto Rico.

I’m a startup mentor on the /r/startups Discord server.
