Hi, there! I’m a software engineer weaving code at Stitch Fix. Before that I was baking up awesome digital treats at Oven Bits in Dallas.

I occasionally write a note or two on topics I’m passionate about. I’m also the youth director at Burleson Bible Church for students in 7th-12th grade. I apologize in advance for the fart jokes.

I previously organized Ruby FTW, the Ruby enthuisast group of Fort Worth, Texas, but have since passed the torch on to others.


I don’t write often or very much. Many of the following articles are barely more than links to other, better articles, and the rest are short and unpolished. Read at your own risk. ;)

I try to respond to email within 48 hours. Feel free to get in touch directly:
