I am a software engineer interested in web architecture, interface design, mobile devices, and community building. As a rule my approach is to avoid unnecessary complexity and maintenance hassles by building simple systems that are easily deployed.
While working for large companies, public & private universities, and startups I've delivered a wide range of projects. My favorite types of work include building developer friendly platforms, data mining, solutions architecture, technology evangelism, web technology standardization, and web-scale search.
When not focusing on internet technology I try to make time for blogging, cooking, cycling, multimedia, music, and veganism. In another life I might have been an urban planner or an NHL hockey player. I live in Seattle, Washington, United States.
