Hi There! I’m Joey!

My world revolves around Tech, Music, Poetry and Psychology!

The Bay area is home to me.

This blog is a way for me to share what I discover about myself and the world.

Currently, I’m an Engineering Manager at Meta Platforms Inc.

Tech

I feel more powerful with a marker and a board than at my computer. An iPad+Stylus has been an interesting middle-ground lately.

Activities like figuring out processes, systems designs, and traffic flows get my heart pumping. I’m the best rubber duck you can ask for. Reach out!

Music

I play the piano, guitar, ukulele, drums, and bass (in that order of expertise). Music is a way for me to express myself without words. I play mostly by ear and love playing pop songs. I can’t read sheet music and dislike practicing the same piece over and over so I guess I’m never learning.

If you’re a classical musician who isn’t open to improv…sorry we can’t be friends.

Hiking and Biking

“Look outdoors for inspiration, because you look indoors to fight perspiration” is something I believe in.

I do some of my best work not at a desk. I’ve recently discovered an eccentric group of friends who let me hike with musical instruments and life has never been better. See more

I need energy for hikes so I’m a foodie…See more

Literature

I love writing, more than I like reading. I find poems that rhyme awesome. Khalil Gibran is my favorite poet. Journaling is awesome!

Brain Science

I love exploring the human thought process, how the human brain works, and neuroscience.
