I am the head of engineering and a co-founder at Overview. Before joining Overview, I was a software engineer at Salesforce, where I worked on web-scale infrastructure projects, including the migration of Salesforce’s largest customers to upgraded hardware with no downtime. I received his Bachelor of Science from the University of California Berkeley College of Engineering, where I was also the head teaching assistant in the field of High Performance Computing.
After 8 years at Tesla I founded Overview. Overview provides cameras and AI recognition algorithms to help manufacturers automate inspection steps, improve uptime, and reduce errors on their manufacturing lines. At Tesla, I built the team that designed the Gigafactory and launched the Supercharger network.
