This site is where I share my music playlists, plus whatever else is on my mind. But for the most part, you’ll just find my music playlists here.

I was born and raised in Seattle and am still an avid Seahawks and Mariners, and now Sounders FC fan. I currently split my time between Palo Alto, CA (primary residence) and Belltown in Seattle, WA.
Things I have been involved with at some point in my professional life:
- Yahoo! Mail or even before that, RocketMail at Four11 Corp.
- Communications, Community, and Front Doors products at Yahoo!.
- ultra wide-area differential GPS network while at SRI International.
- Technology advisor, strategic consultant, and angel investor.
I’m currently at Amazon Music in San Francisco where I lead Tech, Product, and UX.
What’s the story with the logo?
I took the first Kanji character for my last name, “naka”, and superimposed it in negative space on the letter “D”.
“D-nak” Get it?
