Oliver P. Mayor

Welcome to my modest homepage. I’m still unpacking – the bookshelves aren’t even here yet, I’m afraid – so it’s a little bare here. But feel free to have a seat anywhere you like.

About Me

I’m a thirty-something year old human, currently living near Princeton, NJ. Recently, I’ve worked in software doing web and iOS development. I’m interested in data visualization, human-computer interaction, and how we can use technology to do things like shape our behaviors and the world for the better.

I have a lot of other interests, which span things like the study of skill acquisition, self-experimentation, human rationality (and its limits), and ancient philosophy as applied to contemporary, global society.

I’m an avid weightlifter and aspiring polyglot. Right now I’m learning Japanese.

You can find me on Twitter as @olimay. This is a good way to know when I update this page. (And this way, I can let you know when those bookshelves arrive.)

If you’re interested in my professional efforts and side projects, you can follow some combination of my Github and my LinkedIn profile. As summer of 2016 wraps up, I’ll be busy updating these.

Thanks for stopping by. I wish you safe journeys!
