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 was previously 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.

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

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