Now

I have been working at Google Zurich for almost two years now.

My team builds AI infrastructure; the experimentation platform that all of Google’s machine learning models are trained on. We have been obsessed with making our stack faster since December, and it’s FUN. I also get to work with extremely capable and passionate people.

I’m thinking of transferring to San Fransisco; the Valley is still the Mecca of tech.

After an insane amount of overthinking, I started a mailing list. Sign up, and send me an email with ideas on what you want me to write about. The cadence is every two weeks.

Get those sweet overthoughts: Overthinking the Future

Posting unpolished thoughts was always hard. To train my brain to be less perfectionist, I’m posting regularly on X.

Working at a big corporation gives me existential anxiety, so I’ve been racking my brain to work on side projects as a counterweight. After pressuring myself for months to come up with “good startup ideas”, I found that the best operation mode for me is hacking small demos and prototypes. I do tiny projects either on things that I’m enthusiastic about, or trying to solve a problem that annoys me.

For some reason I cannot make myself read a single book at a time. Maybe it’s because of intense work, or just that I’m stimulated by variety. Right now, I’m reading 5 in parallel.

If you happen to be in Zurich, reach out.
