I'm a Portland-based software engineer with far too many interests for my own good. I have more books than I know what to do with and not enough time to read them all (which, in my opinion, is how it should be). I adore dogs (my own, particularly, but all dogs are dear to me) and most animals, really.

On the software side, I'm strongly interested in functional programming, reactive programing, and just generally good software engineering. I'm also the primary organizer of PNWScala and PDXScala and an engineering team lead at Nike.
