Open Source Musings & Snow Time

Welcome! Here’s where I write thoughts on various open source Large Language Model projects and random things I’m doing. I’m a former Staff Software Engineer from Google Translate and until I make it back the states, I’m spending some time exploring the world of smaller teams and companies. I sometimes take on contractor work related to LLMs. During winter, I spend a lot of time skiing in Hakuba Japan (if you find yourself there, say hello and I can show you around).
