Gregory Adam Marton

Nicknamed "Gremio", I studied computing at MIT, then worked at Google in New York, and recently resigned, anticipating moving back to Boston at the end of May 2015, and looking for work doing something new. I'm very open to ideas, and would love to hear from you.

At MIT, I studied Natural Language Understanding in the Infolab group at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab, as a graduate student from Fall 2001 to Spring 2010. I received an Engineer in Computer Science degree in February 2011.

I share techical, humanist, and political reading on G+.
I teach technical interview preparation. I first taught as a volunteer for incoming candidates at Google, then at NYC PyLadies, and then with more examples as a contractor at DevBootCamp NYC.
Published a guide to Making Employee and Client Events Welcoming To Non-Drinkers.
Marched for climate awareness and black lives.
For Bootstrap, wrote an xkcd-height-based rocket game. Try it!
For Debbie's stats class, wrote a little presentation on word distributions.

Marched in the Budapest Pride Parade.
Maintained Google News sections for Free Software, Minorities in Hungary, and Women in STEM.
Taught Bootstrap, bringing Scheme programming and algebra to (otherwise) underpriviliged 6th graders, once a week after school, as a volunteer through Citizen Schools. In the Boston area, I recruited siblings from APO to teach with me, and in New York, friends from Google. Watch on YouTube and talk to me about contributing if you like. I stopped teaching afterschool for the best reason ever: this has been successful enough to get on and to get taught in-school by actual math teachers, rather than volunteers like me.

You might search for me under the names "Greg Marton", "Gregory Marton", "Gregory A. Marton", "KB1NYR", "Marton Gergely" (Hungarian), "Santirix Gremionis" (from 9th grade!), "Gremio", "Grem", or even, if you truly don't like me, "Gremio Marton" or "Gregory Martin", or you might be looking for a gremio who wrote from,,,,,,, or some others, and while some of these names are more correct and relevant than others, I hope in any case that this disclaimer helped you find me.
