I'm an independent software engineer / entrepreneur living between New York City and San Francisco.
I've been programming in one form or other since the mid-1990s. My current focus is native iOS development with Swift, and backend development with Node.js.
I'm interested software that empowers people, and has some social or environmental impact.
Here's a couple fun facts about me:
- I made an app that was featured on Apple billboards and TV ads
- I play drums in a cover band
- I contributed a feature to Ruby on Rails which has been standard in almost every new web framework since
- I designed and fabricated a 16-bit microprocessor in college, and wrote papers on quantum computing and nanoscale transistors
- I got my start in programming by writing plugins for a BBS I ran while in middle school
My current focus is making TED the best it can be.
