I’m a software engineer at Betterment, where I primarily write Ruby on Rails. Previously I worked at Azavea, where I built geospatial web applications in React, Python, and Scala.
I have a PhD in English Literature from Penn State, where I studied 20th-century British fiction, narratology, and philosophical writings about human action. My favorite books are ones like Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, The Waves, Gravity and Grace, and If on a winter’s night a traveler. (I’ve cataloged the books I’ve read over the last 5+ years here.)
