Intern playbook
Intern Playbook
2019 – Present ·

An online course and community to help tech interns succeed at their internships. I wanted to help interns do their best by sharing the most important things I learned from interning at Facebook, Twilio, HackNY, and Google and from talking to former interns and intern managers across the industry.

Web Timer
2011 – Present · Chrome Web Store · Source code

A Chrome extension that automatically keeps track of how you spend your time online so you'll know when you browse Reddit for five hours straight. In 2016, I sold Web Timer when it had 70,000 users but ended up reporting the extension when I noticed the new owner was injecting affiliate links and basically abusing the extension. The extension was taken down (RIP), and I've since uploaded a clean copy.

Campus anonymous
Campus Anonymous

A platform for anonymous, one-on-one conversations built with Akshay Kumar so students can openly talk with their peers about anything, ranging from procrastinating on work to struggling with depression. Initially launched as Tigers Anonymous just for Princeton students and later expanded to all Ivy League students.

An iOS app that notifies you when you're within two minutes of walking distance from a friend so you can run over and give them a hug, take paparazzi pictures from afar to creep them out, etc. The killer feature was letting you spam them with notifications that say 👋 so they know you're serious about waving at them.

Unbreak now
Unbreak Now

A way for users to collaboratively voice their concerns about changes to products and services by tweeting a link to an issue, where the people responsible could respond and have a public dialogue with the community. Mostly used by my friends to voice their thoughts about my personal life and the Unbreak Now website itself so it was clearly a wild success.

An iOS app built with Harvest Zhang and Raymond Zhong that used the permission model of phone calls for location sharing: Send a notification when someone requests their friend's location, and if the request is accepted, share both people's locations to each other in real-time until one of them ends the session.
