My name is Will Jarvis. I’m a technologist in my mid-twenties currently located in the RTP region of North Carolina. I work on building startups, and trying to develop the developed world. I currently run marketing and operations for the machine learning startup Tanjo. I explore Narratives about how the world is better than it has been in the past, the ways in which it is worse, and how to make a definite, more positive future possible, and I am working on making science more efficient at First Flight Research. I like to work on weird projects, that have a good chance of making a large impact.
I’m often talking, reading, or writing on: effective altruism, public choice economics, finance, life extension, social science, existential risks, and cryonics. I also organize the RTP Slate Star Codex meetup every month. You can find out more about that here.
I’m married to the beautiful and talented Abby Ward. I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill. For fun, I get into all kinds of weird fitness events and challenges. To reach me, send me a DM on Twitter, or shoot me an email at willdjarvis at gmail.
