What I’m doing now

I have left AI alignment. See I’m leaving AI alignment – you better stay.

Now I’m searching for work. Here is my pitch:

Got old code that nobody wants to touch?

Got an intermittent failure or performance problem that nobody can solve?

Need a prototype of something, but your folks think it’s too complicated?

– In these cases I can probably help you. At least I’ve resolved such issues repeatedly over the past five years. And, you know, the best predictor of future performance is past performance. So get in touch!

I’m open to remote employment/contracting as well as consulting gigs. I have some experience in the manufacturing industry and AI research, and I would be eager to get to know your industry as well.

My location is Kagoshima, Japan.

This is a now page. I suggest you make one, too!


The app GrafNCalc83 is wonderful. It emulates the TI-83 Plus and beats all other calculator apps I’ve tried. (Okay, I haven’t tried that many. But I’ve tried PCalc, for example, and PCalc doesn’t cut it for me.)

I’m not getting paid for this. I’m just giving this app a shout-out, because I’ve been enjoying using it.
