I live and work in Chicago. I'm interested in programming, technology, biology, finance, design, conservation, and politics.
I have a strong understanding of programming principles, management techniques, and a good instinct for usability and problem solving. I'd like to be a part of a motivated team developing, maintaining, and improving an interesting product.
