An insomniac site relability engineer for Spotify in New York City, founder of the San Francisco Chapter of PyLadies, former vice chair and board member of the Python Software Foundation, and member of the Django Software Foundation.
I have a business degree in finance and economics, but fell in love with programming in 2011. More on my journey about how I became a software engineer can be found in this post.
Writings and thoughts on this site are my own.
I’m not paid for the time that goes into writing these articles, mentoring, conference talks, and contributions to open source (outside of Spotify’s projects).
If you’ve found anything I’ve written, talked about, or done that was particularly helpful, I would greatly appreciate any monetary expression of gratitude: PayPal or Venmo. If you’d rather fuel my creative outlets, my Amazon wishlist can be found here.
