Wesley was teaching Emma the finer points of driving at Safeway today, more specifically: how to honk the horn.

Glory is one of my favourite soundtracks ever.  Super sadness.

Emma has become so much more expressive lately. It's like she's a little human being or something.

Hanging out with the grandparents.

Also, my kids shirts basically sum up my career at Google so far.

Introduction
Staff Software Engineer & Technical Lead at YouTube.

Prior to YouTube, I helped build Google Glass.

Previously worked at Rdio, Songbird, and Sun Microsystems.

Graduated from UC San Diego.  Twice.  I liked the burritos that much.

Born in England to parents who are undoubtedly bitterly disappointed that I can't speak Chinese.  But I made up for it by giving one of my dogs a Chinese name.

I live in Oakland with my wife Wendy, my baby boy Wesley, my asshole beagle Char-siu Bao, and my good beagle Mochi.

Fantastic purchasing experience here. Max Rivadeneira was great to work with, and got me a great price on an awesome car (2014 QX60). Would definitely purchase with Infiniti of Oakland again.
