I am a human. I write software. Once upon a time I wrote music and prose. I am interested in the intersection of technology and the humanities.
I work as a “Digital Services Programmer” (aka. software engineer, software developer, programmer) for the California Institute of Technology Library. In my career I have focused on building web based systems for academic institutions (previously USC, now California Institute of Technology). I bring to the table both B.S. in Computer Science as well as an M.A. in the Humanities. I enjoy diving deeply into a problem and working through solutions that have measurable results.

Firefox OS and extending the web platform to small and embeddable devices
Chrome OS, I was a lucky CR-48 tester, then a Samsung Series 5 regular and a few more Chromebooks later I wound up using a Pixel combined with a Raspberry Pi and really enjoyed it. Then I spilt coffee on it, couldn’t get it repaired and I moved on to focusing on Raspberry Pi computers.
