I live in Chicago and work for Braintree as a Software Developer, primarily coding in Ruby and Python.
I attended Northwestern University where I earned a B.A. in Economics.
I'm actively involved in the Tech and Open Source communities. I regularly attend conferences such as OSCon, Strange Loop, and SXSW Interactive. I'm a member of ChiPy, the Chicago Python User Group. I've given talks at the meetings, as well as hosted the event at the Braintree offices. I contribute to open source software and regularly work on the open source packages released by Braintree. I answer questions on Stack Overflow, contributing both code and written explainations back to the community.
