Super excited to be joining The Flatiron School as head of product, to help rethink how we educate the next generation of technologists.

Good American comfort food, the mac n cheese in particular. But I found the atmosphere to be a little bit sterile. Also, there is no table service which makes it feel a bit like a cafeteria rather than a cozy spot to sit, eat and enjoy. Ideal for take out though, if you live nearby.

Fantastic thai food. Probably the best I've had in San Francisco. And the service was impeccable.

Our local pub. Our living room away from our living room. It's small, "neighborhoody" and unpretentious. Prefer it to the nearby Churchill, which is more of a scene.
