Web Developer, Software Engineer, and Consultant in Washington, DC
I'm passionate about solving problems, learning by doing, and giving back to the community. My most popular tutorial, now available as an automated script, has helped thousands of people set up a development environment on a Mac.
I'm currently at 18F in Washington, D.C., helping government agencies provide better digital and web services to the people living in America.
Prior to joining 18F, I was developing Ohana API, an open source project that makes it easy for communities and local governments to publish and maintain a Human Services resource directory.
I started Ohana API with Anselm Bradford and Sophia Parafina during our Code for America Fellowship in 2013. Ohana API was one of seven winners (out of 628 entries) in the Knight News Challenge: Health, and has received much media attention. Watch me present the Ohana API at the Code for America Summit.
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.
