👋🏼 Hey! I'm Wesley.
I'm currently working on Aragon AI.
Previously, I was the third engineer at Fractional, a proptech company that has raised over $20M from investors such as Fifth Wall, CRV, Soma Capital, Y Combinator, Will Smith, Kevin Durant, etc.
Before that, I was the first employee and a founding member of Virtually , an edtech company. I went through Y Combinator with the founder and led a four-person engineering team. We were funded by Tiger Global, among others.
I was also on the core AI team at Clinc AI and a software engineer at Microsoft. I double majored in computer and data science at the University of Michigan.
📍 I'm originally from California but I've also lived in Oregon, Taipei, Shanghai, Massachusetts, Michigan, and Nevada. I currently live near Hayes Valley, San Francisco. If you're in the area, come say hi!
