Greetings!

I’m Harry Schwartz (he/him/his), an engineer living in Colorado 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.

Career-wise, I’m mostly doing freelance technical consulting these days. I do a lot of Web development (mostly in Ruby), but I’ve also got some experience with special-purpose compilers and computational biology. If you’d like to start a conversation about how I might be able to help you, I’d love to chat. Feel free to get in touch!

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.
