Web developer since 1998. Rails developer since 2011. Open source contributor. Code for America alumnus.
I'm passionate about solving problems, learning by doing, and giving back to the community. My tutorial for setting up a Ruby on Rails development environment on a Mac has been viewed over 640,000 times since it was published in early April 2012, and continues to help hundreds of new visitors every day. The process is now automated via my laptop script, which has 263 stars on GitHub. I'm currently at 18F in Washington, D.C., working on login.gov, a open source shared authentication platform aiming to improve access to government services. Prior to joining 18F, I was developing Ohana API, an open source project that makes it easy to publish and maintain an open directory of community resources using the Open Referral data standard. I started Ohana API with Anselm Bradford and Sophia Parafina during our Code for America Fellowship in 2013. Ohana API was one of seven winners (out of 628 entries) in the Knight News Challenge: Health, and was featured in several media outlets. Before joining Code for America, I led the Automation effort for the AOL Mobile team, focusing on iOS automated testing using Calabash, Cucumber, Ruby, and Objective-C. My work at AOL resulted in an invitation to talk about iOS Automation with Calabash at the Mobile Testing Summit in San Francisco.
