Washington, Dc Metro Area
I'm passionate about solving problems, learning by doing, and teaching.
I spent most of 2013 in San Francisco for the Code for America Fellowship, where my two teammates and I built the Ohana API, a platform that makes it easy for communities and local governments to publish and maintain a Human Services resource directory. The API also allows developers to build impactful applications, such as SMC-Connect and Ohana SMS, that serve underprivileged residents.
Before joining Code for America, I led the Automation effort for the AOL Mobile team, focusing on iOS automated testing using Calabash, Cucumber, & Ruby. My work at AOL resulted in an invitation to speak about iOS Automation with Calabash at the Mobile Testing Summit in San Francisco.
I'm also the author of several tutorials, the most popular of which is helping hundreds of people every day set up a Mac for development with Xcode, Homebrew, Git, RVM & Ruby.
