About me

I am a former molecular biologist with over 20 years of lab experience. Prior to 2013, I'd started and stopped programming about a dozen times, sampling COBOL, Basic, C++, C#, R, Python and JavaScript, but not staying with any of them for long. Ruby and Rails changed that - for whatever reason, the language and the framework got under my skin, and I've been immensely enjoying coding ever since. I found my way to Agile Ventures through the EdX/UC Berkeley CS169 course in the spring of 2014. AV is a great idea with huge potential, and I'm glad to have an opportunity to contribute.

Currently, I am a back-end engineer at GreenhouseCI - a continuous integration service for mobile development. When away from Vim, I spend time with my wonderful wife and our two lovely daughters, take pictures and do an occasional bit of handcrafting.
