code, culture, and a life considered

About Me

I am a 32-year old software developer living in Falls Church, Virginia (near DC).

Throughout my career, I’ve had the pleasure of working on systems of various sizes and scopes, in several different technology stacks. I’ve done everything from webapps to hacking on kernel drivers. (I have a particular affinity for lower level code.) Having witnessed several tech stacks die in my career already, I favor deep, foundational knowledge over fixating on current technology.

Currently, my focus is on improving the state of tooling. This has been a gradual realization, starting with some flirtations with overly ambitious frameworks, and then to language implementations. While I’m still searching for the precise medium, I’m passionate about developing software that solves real problems for developers in an elegant way.
