Hi! I’m Jakob. I write software and puzzles sometimes, and make art at other times.
I work at Keybase writing software to make end-to-end encrypted services more widely available.
I write puzzles and do organizational things for Galactic Puzzlehunt. Some puzzles that I've authored or coauthored that I am proud of include Road Trip, Unsafe, A Crossword, and The Galactic Conference. I hunt with ✈✈✈ Galactic Trendsetters ✈✈✈ during Mystery Hunt.
In the past, I did some computer systems security research at MIT CSAIL.
Other things I like include board games, cycling, climbing, electronics tinkering, and vegetarian cooking.
