I'm a developer and designer currently working at thoughtbot in San Francisco. In my spare time, I help build solutions to social problems at Code for SF.

Until recently 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.
