I'm a programmer, writer, and musician.

I work at Simple, and teach programming with Pluralsight.

USA-based: I've lived around the West Coast my whole life. I grew up around Bellingham, moved to Portland, now I'm in Los Angeles.

I'm an introvert, kind of... I like solitude but love teaching and writing. I've identified as ENTP, INTP, and INFP, but it's more fun to just say that I'm not static in behavior.

In my spare time, I kick it with my corgi, and meditate. Learning is my favorite past-time - I love books and documentaries that make me rethink my assumptions.

I'm focused on doing my thing, which isn't always the obvious thing.

Looking for my Twitter, GitHub, or something else?

Here's what I'm doing now.

Kristian consistently makes me think about topics and ideas that I would normally overlook. I appreciate his ability to make a profound impact on my day with so few words. Each post makes me feel like I'm better off for reading it.
