my name is jackie luo, and i'm a product manager at driver's seat. i'm working to build a democratically owned and organized tech industry. if you are, too, get in touch.

when i have time, i run the dream machine (an erratically published newsletter with essays on technology, society, and life), irl society (a monthly event series), and the framework project (an interview series with people thinking about tech and its impact on society). less formally, i like to make candles, shoot photography, read, thrift furniture, and cook.

previously, i worked in engineering at square and nylas and studied philosophy at columbia university. once upon a time, i ran a fashion and arts publication called ache magazine and a nonprofit called fashion cares.
