I am a senior software engineer with diverse technical and business skills. I compete in and often win hackathons, have worked at companies as notable as Microsoft and Adobe, took my own startup through Techstars Boulder, and regularly build new projects for fun and profit. My work often involves web scraping, data mining, or wearable computing. I have over a decade of experience on the Microsoft stack in addition to several years of Node.JS and Ruby on Rails. My creations have won plenty of awards, including over 15 hackathon wins and plenty of other competitions. I am also experienced at presenting in professional and entertainment contexts. I am currently a senior growth engineer at Adobe in San Francisco, and creating GlassPrompter (teleprompter for Google Glass) and AllThePeople.net (personal data mining system) on the side. Additonally, I volunteer at the historic Great Star Theater in San Francisco's Chinatown, assisting in front-of-house management, marketing, building restorations, and occasionally stage managing. I love helping put on awesome events and contributing to people having unforgettable experiences.

I don't write new posts very often, but here are some of the things I've created:

Wearables XP Glass Edition

I used to love Windows XP Tablet PC Edition. In 2007 I bought a used Motion Computing tablet PC from a doctor’s office. It was a crappy computer: text input was extremely painful, the stylus wouldn’t properly calibrate, and there was no touch input. It wasn’t a reimagined computing experience, it was just a crippled laptop. But it was so amazing to hold a keyboardless laptop! This wasn’t the future exactly, but it was a taste of tablet computing, and it felt exhilarating to be on the edge of a completely reinvented form factor. It took several years before Apple overhauled the tablet experience and the idea gained mainstream acceptance, and even then the iPad owed a lot to the attempts that came before it.
