An addictive card game that's like solitaire... but fun!
Treys is a single-player card game that's both more fun and more strategic than traditional solitaire, free cell or other patience games like Klondike… · More Solitaire. The rules are almost deceptively simple but a well developed strategy can often make the difference between winning or losing by a single card.

What I Do
I'm a former physicist trying to carve a slice out of the tech industry. My days are currently spent doing software development and analyzing mobile game data to get the company Intoli (which I co-founded) off the ground. In my free time I enjoy playing guitar, drinking beer, and snowboarding.
I had a star role in the famous film "Particle Fever", which documents the discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN. I played the acclaimed role of "sleeping audience member" during the official announcement of the discovery of the Higgs in the CERN auditorium. Of all the sleeping attendees in the room (believe me, there were many) I was selected as the representative to be prominently featured in the film.

On a more serious/professional note I would consider one of my biggest achievements to be my work with Evan Sangaline on a new touchscreen keyboard design that was optimized to reduce swipe/gesture input errors. This work was done at the same time I was finishing up my Ph.D. and resulted in an open source library and paper (all linked to in this blog post http://sangaline.com/blog/optimizing_for_swype/). Shortly after we released our work Google also released a study with the same objective, which we outperformed.
