Professional title:

Artist and software engineer

What do you do?

I paint, write code, mentor junior software engineers, clean up other people's messes, and my own as well.


I paint to get the pictures out of my head and into the world. I code because I love the craft of coding. I mentor to give something back.

What should we read?
