I instigated Bangor, Maine's first ever hackathon: Maine Civic Hack Day. It was an explosion of awesome that is still changing my life months later. My newest endeavor is a project called Hacktivate. It's first goal will be to bring the hacker club community to local high schools.

What do I know about hacking and what is this hacker club? I'm glad you asked! I started a group called Maine Hacker Club in February of 2012. It's a delightful group of supportive nerds & technologists that meet weekly. Come talk about robots & web apps, programming or whatever else with us.

I have programming experience in both the proprietary enterprise world and the open source API world. I'm enthusiastic about Node.js and writing API libraries on github.
