I live in Oakland, CA and work as a software engineer at Medium. I was born and raised in Tashkent, Uzbekistan and moved to the Bay Area in 2008.
If you’re looking for a chess player, I’m not him.
I’m involved with a local Zen group called Awake in Life. If you’re looking for a meditation group in downtown San Francisco check us out! You don’t have to be a Buddhist or know anything about meditation. Sometimes you can also find me at the East Bay Meditation Center in downtown Oakland or at the Insight Meditation with Will Kabat-Zinn in West Berkeley.
I’m a proud white belt practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at the Pacific Ring Sports in Oakland.
I try to keep a pretty low-profile online. Here are public services that I use:
You might have noticed that there are no links to Facebook, Twitter, and so on. I choose not to have accounts on these services for various reasons.
If you know my phone number you can find me on iMessage or Signal. For iMessage, you can also use my personal email address.
Thank you very much.
