About

I live in Burlington, Vermont, which I enjoy very much. The weather can be a bit harsh, but the people are nice, the food is good, and the quality of life is high.

I work remotely for charity: water, where I build web applications with Ruby on Rails.

I consider myself a Rubyist, and I have been programming with the Ruby language the past five years. I also work a lot with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Lately I have been learning Go, which is a nice change of pace from Ruby.

Aside from building software, I enjoy cooking, reading, and walking.

My current favorite author is Haruki Murakami. I think my favorite novel by him is Kafka on the Shore. His writing grips me, and I find it hard to put his books down.

Lastly, I like walking because it is so simple. I do not need to wear any special clothes or have any equipment. I can just put on my shoes and do it. There are plently of places to walk in Burlington, and the beautiful lake is great scenery.

If you want to follow along with me, I am active on a few different places:
