Hello! My name is Jack. I'm an engineer, product designer, and writer. The most important thing to me is improving well-being through progress in our systems, and through science and technology. I obsess over ideas in NewSpace, but also have varying interest in:
- Systems engineering and incentive design
- Decision psychology
- Learning meta-learning skills with compounding returns (learning to learn, learning to read, learning techniques to augment working memory)
- Nutrition, health, and fitness
- Evolutionary biology
- Art history
These days, I work on designing and building decentralised systems of communication and coordination. Previously, I worked on designing systems to best align incentives around a child's education at Outschool and ClassDojo. Prior to tech, I was an aerospace engineer at DLR (German Aerospace Center) in Munich, and was a co-founder of STEMN (Startmate, 2016), an open source network for science and engineering research.
Part of my motivation of writing publicly is to connect with other curious people. To take a page from Patrick McKenzie's standing invitations:
If you want to talk space, systems, or some other odd peculiarities, I want to talk to you.
