I’m often available for consulting—feel free to contact me for details.

I live in the Bay Area with one girlfriend and numerous houseplants, where I write words and work on (mostly silly) projects.

Most of my computer-friendly writing is in Ruby, Go, or Emacs Lisp. These days I’m especially interested in programming languages, mentoring and teaching, distributed systems, and formal verification.

Currently a free agent. Previously at Google, thoughtbot, Ginkgo Bioworks, William & Mary, and Ursinus College. Organizer-emeritus of the Boston Emacs Meetup, New York Emacs Meetup, Ruby Project Night NYC, and the Classical Code Reading Group of New York.

Socially obligated to buy me a present? Check the ol’ wishlist.
