My name is Tristan Rasmussen. I'm a software engineer living in California. In 2015 I recieved my BS and MS in Computer Science from the University of Chicago. I then spent four years working on video playback at YouTube, with a strong emphasis on live and protected content. In 2019 I left YouTube to focus on my personal well being and experiment with various personal projects.
Outside of work I'm interested in anything that enhances the human experience. I enjoy games, both video games and board games. I am an avid consumer of science fiction and fantasy. I enjoy spending time in nature and anything that involves moving my body. I'm also open to learning about new things and new experiences.
