Updated my resume
Over the years, I've reviewed a LOT of résumés. When I'm hiring someone, I'm looking for a quick snapshot of who someone is professionally. Unfortunately, most résumés fall short of capturing any of it.

They're either too dense or too sparse. They focus on job descriptions and titles rather than accomplishments. They list skills instead of experiences. They're just bad, and good people wind up getting ignored.

I decided to update my own résumé with these issues in mind. Let me know how it looks!

Curated a playlist
Every December, I put together a playlist of the top tracks I found or rediscovered that year. Curating the songs is so personal, bringing back the entire year of emotions. Music is a core part of me, so I thought it belongs on Polywork. 👍

Verified on Polywork
I'm a big believer that good companies don't hire based on résumés but instead hire folks for their perspective, experience, and values. They aren't just hiring a list of skills, they're hiring people.

Polywork gets it, allowing us to showcase all of who we are. I'm happy to be an early adopter here!

Recorded a DJ set
Fun fact: I used to be a DJ. I mixed vinyl at parties, clubs, etc. for over 12 years. I haven't touched records in 10 years and I've missed it.

Today I recorded a little fun 30 minute minimal house session just to shake off the rust. Enjoy if you're into that sort of thing!

I'm trying to put stuff out into the world without overthinking it; go easy on me 🙃

Ran a 10K
Reached a milestone
I ran my first 10K!

I signed up for the Around the Crown 10K after finishing my first 5K race in 2019. Training to overcome asthma and teaching my body how to run at distance has always been something I never thought possible. 10 kilometers, 6.2 miles, is longer than I've ever run before.

Yet, I did it. It was a reminder that you can do hard things.

Spoke on a podcast

A few weeks ago I was invited to speak with @StanfordWiCS on their podcast. Along with @hidrees and @pabloparedes, we discussed ethics, challenges, and design concerns building tech for healthcare.

A pleasure to be in such good company! 🙏
