I'm a Software Engineer for MapQuest in Denver Colorado. I write iOS apps, Mac apps and web apps. I enjoy working with large data sets, and solving interesting problems. I studied at the University of Colorado in Boulder, and at Cornell University.
I have been programming longer than I can remember, doing it for work and for fun. There's been lots of MATLAB, C, Objective-C, python, Java, and R (and historically, Logo, BASIC, and MIPS and ARM assembly). See a portfolio of some of my Projects.
This website is backed by a custom CMS I built in python and runs on Google App Engine.
I'm self-taught on the guitar, and have been playing since about 2001. Some videos of my playing gained popularity on YouTube around 2006.
