At Trulia, Sha was responsible for various mapping projects visualizing crime, school, and commute time information. Since leaving Trulia, Sha has been working as a free agent and advising small data-driven startups, as well as building Gifpop and Meshu with his partner Rachel Binx. Sha is endlessly fascinated by data, design, fabrication, and cities.
