Hey, I'm Tiger. I live in San Juan, Puerto Rico with my pup Niko. I'm currently co-founder and CTO at Welcome (we're hiring!). In past lives I've worked as a software engineer, run a deep learning study group, and built models to win sports bets.

  • opportunities to build jaw-dropping experiences at Welcome 😮
  • books📚
  • leadership 🤔
  • programming 💻
  • psychedelics 🍄
  • ML/AI 🧠
  • dogs 🐕
  • sports 🏀
  • how we learn ❓
  • what makes us tick 🤷
  • anything else you happen to be interested in :)
Learning Things

In early 2018 I started this site to help myself think more effectively. I spent a lot of time studying, but was frustrated by how much and how quickly I ended up forgetting.

The most effective techniques I have found have been compressed knowledge and spaced repetition. This site's contents heavily reflect this; my notes are organized as full-text-searchable webpages, and my full Anki deck is published here regularly whenever I get around to it. The tradeoff of consuming less and understanding more has made my work and study much much more enjoyable, productive, and fulfilling.

While the primary purpose of this site is as a personal reference, it also ostensibly functions as a set of recommendations for anyone with shared interests, just like the many book lists and Twitter feeds I've trolled to find books and articles. The headers at the top are a good starting point. My generic star-rating system goes from 1 (waste of time) to 5 (legitimately life-changing), with 2 being "average". Each tag has its own page with items in descending rating order. If you know of any content you think I might enjoy, please shoot me an email!

"The best thing for being sad," replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, "is to learn something. That is the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then -- to learn." (T.H. White)
