Hi, I'm Sachin Kesiraju.
Currently working full time on a cool new project. Formerly student at UC Berkeley studying Computer Science and Philosophy.
In the past I was a Summer Fellow at Lightspeed and a Software Engineering Intern at Affirm. I live in San Francisco and mix music, play poker and listen to podcasts in my free time. I'm particularly interested in rationality, social psychology, political theory and using technology to solve valuable problems.
