My name is Alex.

I live with my wife and dog in the Boston area where I work as a software engineer at Google. I studied physics and French during my undergrad at Washington University in St. Louis and more recently computer science at Tufts. I love to write and teach, and I’ve found that explaining things is the best way to learn.

I used to work at Giant Otter Technologies, a very small AI startup that got acquired by Drift.

I’m on GitHub, twitter (infrequently) @lxmkls, and Hacker News.
