ABOUT

I'm a Software Engineer who writes Ruby, Python, Javascript, and HTML/CSS. I believe code should be clean, architecture and design should be elegant, tests should be well thought out and purposeful, and that software should be made with love, trust, and empathy. I am excited by geospatial databases, full-text searching, machine learning, and some measure of mad hackery. I also dabble in homebrewing, cooking, cycling, and karaoke
