I’m Harry Schwartz (he/him/his), an independent software consultant living in Vancouver with one wife and numerous houseplants. I spend a lot of time outdoors, do some recreational writing, and work on a handful of (mostly silly) projects.

I’ve previously worked and studied at Google, thoughtbot, Ginkgo Bioworks, William & Mary, and Ursinus College. I’m also the organizer-emeritus of the Boston Emacs Meetup, New York Emacs Meetup, Ruby Project Night NYC, and the Classical Code Reading Group of New York.

More interested in this site than the person that runs it? I’ve stepped up this blog’s self-importance by adding a colophon.
