About Me

Hi, I’m Andrew,

I live in Seattle, WA. I am the co-founder and CEO of Rainway, a 2018 Thiel Fellowship alumni, and have been featured on Forbes 30 Under 30.

I’ve been building software since elementary school, so my love for computers and technology is lifelong. I’m interested in anything that will help me understand myself and others better. The best way to understand people is to understand the environment they have that shaped them. That’s why I’m also fascinated by psychology and the history of our species.

I want to help bring a human lens to the technology industry and to help create a better understanding and appreciation for the human side of software development and all things tech.

My blog features personal essays that focus on race, mental health, socioeconomic inequality, and other topics often overlooked by mainstream thought leaders and those who can only see things through Silicon Valley’s worldview.
