My portrait

I am a software engineer working on the Google Chrome V8 team in Munich, Germany, generally trying to make the system run faster. Areas of current interest are Allocation Sites, which allow us to gather feedback for specific initialization sites in JavaScript, and Inline Caches (wonderful article by Vyacheslav).

This site is primarily devoted to my longtime hobby of alpine climbing. I learned to climb in Washington State, and moved to Munich in 2006 to explore the Alps. I enjoy the mountain activities so much that I’ve obsessively recorded them since the very first climb in 1997. I’m keeping statistics about climbs in the gym lately here.

Occasionally I write on my blog about music, metaphysics, politics, books, or family strolls through the Englischer Garten.
