Varun Shenoy

EE + CS @ Stanford. Experimenting in public. Cappuccino addict.

  • Learning about complexity theory, language models, and modern history at Stanford.
  • Exploring the startup idea maze and working on side-projects.

I'm primarily a technical builder and enjoy working on creative projects. My academic background is in applied math and systems programming, with splashes of philosophy, hardware design, and psychology.

I spend a lot of time thinking about crafting tight-knit communities for builders. I'm a venture partner at Contrary and help organize Friends and Family.

In my free time, I enjoy tearing apart longform essays, practicing photography, playing ultimate frisbee, and defying gravity (by lifting heavy weights).

If you're interested in any freelance/consulting work from my end, send me an email.

These pages are all dynamic and update as I learn more and chat with cool folks.
