About Me

Hi! I’m a software engineer at JPL, where I work on mission planning and simulation software used by multiple spacecraft. You can find me at any of the social sites under my name in the header above, but I spend most of my time on Twitter and Hacker News.

I’ve been doing some flavor of software engineering for about twenty years! In that time, I’ve cultivated a passion for sustainable software engineering, spanning broad interests in statically typed languages, concurrency-driven modularity, and balancing correctness, legibility, and speed. I’m less concerned with particular technology stacks, and far more interested in deeply understanding the problem domain to be automated. Looking forward, I’m sure plenty of my published content here will be on these topics.

Please don’t hesistate to reach out on Twitter if you’d like to chat! (If you prefer e-mail, my address is my Twitter username at this domain.)
