After several years in the depths of high-performance computing, I returned to the web world a few years ago and discovered that what was once a medium for exchanging information had transformed into the world's most powerful application development environment. I've been hooked ever since.

I've recently resumed independent contracting, working on rich-client web-applications. Previously, as web lead at dotCloud, I spent my time mashing together Python with both browser- and Node.js-based JavaScript to create a best-of-both-world application used by thousands of developers. I also acted as "Developer Advocacate" -- dotCloud's "customer-in-residence" to ensure the company produced a product developers love.

I maintain and contribute to a number of open source projects
