Hi, I’m Joe. What’s there to say about me? There’s a lot, but I’ll try and have some of my favorite quotes speak for me.
People aren’t dumb, the world is hard.
— Richard Thaler
Use your intuition to ask questions, not to answer them.
— John Ousterhout
You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.
— Maya Angelou
Discovering the truth about ourselves is a lifetime’s work, but it’s worth the effort.
— Fred Rogers
Society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.
— Anonymous Greek proverb
I guess the only thing that really says about me is that I’m the kind of person who saved some quotes they found meaningful. When I write for myself it shows up on the homepage (cause I own this website), but I keep a list of the my favorite posts here. But mostly I’m living my days trying to prove that you can get ahead in this world through kindness and consideration, while bringing others along with you.
At work, I’m a senior mobile engineer at Twitter, which is a fancy way of saying I work on their iPhone app, and specifically on the Health Client team. We focus on building product experiences to minimize misinformation, disinformation, abuse, and harassment to improve public discourse.
Outside of work I spend time volunteering. Nowadays I find myself hosting virtual office hours for underrepresented people in STEM. If you’re not sure this is for you, here are some of my favorite testimonials 🥰. Folks seem to think they’re rather helpful, so if that sounds like something you’re interested in, please sign up and say hi. 1
In my free time I enjoy working on side projects that help me grow creatively. Some are fun, some are dumb, some help me learn, but all of them mean something to me and have shaped me into who I am today. And of course free time wouldn’t be much without leisure, I like to unwind by biking around NYC, running, watching too much TV, and reading all kinds of books under the sun (sometimes in the sun).
If you’re looking to hire me, well I’ve got bad news for you, I’M UNHIRABLE! That’s because I’m currently very happy, not because I have awful personality traits. But if you want a resume here’s my latest one. There’s a good chance it’s out of date, so it may be worth checking LinkedIn for something that may also be out of date, but probably less so.
There’s a lot more to me, so don’t be shy in reaching out. And if you’re more old-fashioned, I’m also reachable via email.
By now you’ve figured out my secret, I like quotes. So I’ll leave you with a few more that mean a lot to me.
Find out who you are. And do it on purpose.
— Dolly Parton
I am an optimist. It does not seem too much use being anything else.
— Winston Churchill
It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.
The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.
— F. Scott Fitzgerald
I’m interested in things that could only have come from my head, that grow out of some strange interest that I have a history with.
— Omar Rizwan
