I specialize in web development, and prefer Ruby- and Python-based web stacks. I am a recovering PHP user but hope never to have to use it again.
In my free time, I help maintain Jekyll, an open-source static site generator originally created by Tom Preston-Werner back in the day. I am a huge fan of open-source and try to be involved as much as possible. As Ben Balter once wisely said: “Be the pull request you wish to see in the world.” I try to live by this motto.
My main (academic) interests lie in Information Architecture, Information Retrieval, and Information Management.
When not programming, one can find me writing, photographing or singing. I sing in The Class Notes, an a cappella group at Cornell, and in the Cornell University Glee Club, for whom I’ve written several small web apps.
