Hey, nice to meet you!

I'm Feross Aboukhadijeh, a programmer, designer, teacher, and mad scientist.

I'm years old.

I am currently building WebTorrent, a streaming BitTorrent client for the browser, powered by WebRTC. Before that, I built PeerCDN, a peer-to-peer content delivery network to makes sites faster and cheaper.

I'm a graduate of Stanford University and I've worked at Quora, Facebook, and Intel. In the past, I did research in the Stanford human-computer interaction and computer security labs.

I enjoy working on "mad science" — projects that make people say, "Whoa! I didn't know that was possible!". I frequently win hackathons by crafting code that gives kids with spectacles spectacular fits. Recently, I built this virtual reality piloting program that lets you control a quadcopter with an Oculus Rift.

At Stanford, I taught computer science for 6 quarters to students in Stanford's CS 198 program, and was a teaching assistant for CS107: Computer Organization and Systems. I organized lots of sweet computing-related events as president of Stanford's Association for Computing Machinery chapter.

In September 2010, I built YouTube Instant (a really fast way to search YouTube) in just 3 hours as a bet with my roommate. The site garnered immediate worldwide media attention — 1 million visitors in 10 days, and hundreds of news stories. Chad Hurley, CEO and co-founder of YouTube, was so impressed that he immediately offered me a job at YouTube (which I had to turn down in order to finish my degree).

In my free time, I work on StudyNotes, a website to help students study better. I started it in high school and have been maintaining it ever since. For a sample, check out some AP US History notes or college essays.

I like long-distance running, basketball, music (playing and listening), anime, and games (counter-strike is my favorite).

My resume is available if you want to be all, like, formal and stuff, dude. Email me at [my first name]@feross.org.

I currently live in San Francisco, CA.

I am so handsome. Me as a little kid. I was obsessed with computers from the very beginning. Feross Aboukhadijeh in New York Magazine. Photo by Dan Winters.
