Hi, I'm Neall! I currently live in DC, and spend most of my time actively learning and experiencing new things. My primary interests are related to software, economics, urbanism, evolutionary biology, and meditation.

My ideal learning cycle, when I'm in it, feels as natural as breathing— inhale (by reading and listening), exhale (by speaking and writing).

I've found 'exhaling' to be indispensable in the learning process. Verbalization produces structured thought, exposes inconsistencies and assumptions, and shortens iteration cycles in refining understanding. Importantly, it offers the potential to help someone else learn and explore new ideas.

I'm currently employed as a software engineer at Twitter.

Topics I find endlessly fascinating
