I’ve been casually following the EA scene since ~2017, originally introduced to EA (I think) through the Doing Good Better book, then Tetlock’s work on forecasting, and picked up forecasting as a hobby primarily through GJOpen. I consider myself quite familiar with the forecasting sub-community of EA Twitter and have explored work or actively volunteered with EA forecasting orgs Metaculus and most recently Manifold Markets (big fan of both). I mostly keep up with EA through Twitter, the EA forum, and the 80k podcasts.
I would love to one day transition into working more directly in an EA-related field, perhaps on the priority problem of improving institutional decision making given my interest in forecasting, or in operations management. Alternatively, my tech/program management background could potentially be conducive to founding an EA project or working on AI.
When I’m not working, I’m exploring DC, visiting nearby family, traveling, listening to podcasts, forecasting/gambling/playing poker, tweaking my fantasy football teams, writing about sports analytics, or playing squash.
