I make it easier for people to do stuff, usually with code and English.

Currently, I'm making it easier for you to read eBooks on your Kindle at Amazon. I work on random things as Pug & Chalice.

I live in Seattle! Before that I was in Williamsburg, Virginia, where I received a dual degree in Computer Science and Marketing from the College of William & Mary.

The last country I visited was Sweden. The last album I loved -- like, really loved -- was Surf.
