About me

I'm a software engineer currently working on Godspeed and Keysmith.

I used to work at Dispatch, Triplebyte, and zyBooks. I've also taught a class on front end web development at General Assembly.

I'm really into Emacs and my dog Winnie.


I've written a few blog posts.

Things I've built and done

Godspeed is a todo manager built for speed and keyboard orientation. Every action in Godspeed is doable from your keyboard and will respond instantly.

Dispatch was a Slack client that gave you an inbox for your messages. You could archive, snooze, or filter Slack messages just like you would email. It was incredibly well loved by a couple hundred users, but ultimately didn't get enough traction to continue.

I worked at Triplebyte from 2016 to 2018. Triplebyte helps engineers find jobs. They put engineers through a technical interview and only let the top folks through. They then introduce those engineers to partner companies who trust Triplebyte's vetting process.

I worked at zyBooks from 2012 to 2016. zyBooks creates interactive, online textbooks for college students. They've since been bought by Wiley.
