I'm a developer and designer currently working at Code for America, building a tool to help the Seattle Police Department deliver better care to people with mental illnesses and chemical dependencies in their community.

Before that I worked as a consultant at thoughtbot in San Francisco, building a wide range of web applications for startups and large businesses.

I studied computer science at Michigan State University, where I researched digital evolution at the BEACON center and helped the startups TempoRun and Carbon Cash build their web services.

I'm passionate about teaching programming, talking at conferences, and writing software that solves real problems. Get in touch with me by email – I'd love to chat. You can also find me on github and twitter.
