I'm an urban designer turned open web developer—which isn't as odd as it sounds.
I'm the lead for the Developer Tools team at Glitch. Before that I worked on the API at Splice and before that a bunch of things at GitHub, last was starting the Electron team. The year that changed everything was being a Code for America fellow in 2012.
I did the fellowship after working at the City of Boston's Urban Design Technology group and an architecture firm. Before that I was in college, Georgia Tech, graduating with an architecture degree. Before all that I was an awkward teen in Middle Georgia and a baby!
Also, also! I saw all the paintings by Vermeer!
