I'm Calix, a designer & engineer exploring new paradigms in AI. I'm currently exploring verticalized AI applications and building random projects. I also write occasionally.
I'm a sophomore at the USC Iovine & Young Academy studying Design, CS, and Business. I help lead a startup incubator on campus, currently incubating 6 student startups. Here are some of the projects I work on at USC.
In high school, I built Hours, a virtual studying platform with over 500k+ users which was acquired in 2021. I was accepted into Y Combinator as the youngest founder in the YC W23 batch. I've done product, engineering, design, and growth at LangChain, Whatnot, Fiveable, Uiflow (YC W21), Beacons.ai (a16z, YC), Kinetic, Cornell, and more.
I'm also an Atlas Fellow, Emergent Ventures Fellow, and an On Deck Fellow (ODC1). See more on my resume or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
