Hi, I'm Alex.

I'm an options trader in Chicago. In my free time, I spend a lot of time thinking about programming languages, human-centered design, and philosophy (among other things). I'm currently working on a PDF reader for technical reading, called Cerberus.

I'm inspired by people like Alan Kay and Doug Engelbart. I grew up in Korea, New Jersey, and Connecticut. In college, I majored in math and statistics.

If you want, you can keep me accountable by following along my 2024 Public Goals.
