I'm passionate about solving problems, learning by doing, and giving back to the community. My tutorial for setting up a Ruby on Rails development environment on a Mac has been viewed over 300,000 times since it was published in April 2012, and continues to help hundreds of new visitors every day.
I'm currently at 18F in Washington, D.C., helping government agencies provide better digital and web services to the people living in America.
Prior to joining 18F, I was developing Ohana API, an open source project I started with Anselm Bradford and Sophia Parafina during our Code for America Fellowship in 2013. Ohana API was one of seven winners (out of 628 entries) in the Knight News Challenge: Health, and has received much media attention.
In 2014, I also provided Ruby on Rails and QA consulting to OpenCounter and Crowdpac.
Before joining Code for America, I led the Automation effort for the AOL Mobile team, focusing on iOS automated testing using Calabash, Cucumber, Ruby, and Objective-C.
