About

I live in Raleigh, NC and work on the web building products that solve real business problems.

What I'm Working On

  1. 👨🏻‍💻 I'm a software engineer working remotely for a wonderful digital innovation agency. I love my job!
  2. 🤖 I spend most of my free time outside of work hacking on personal projects and pursuing goals.
  3. 📬 I write a weekly newsletter which comes out on Sundays. The newsletter covers code, personal finance and self improvement. Check out the previous newsletters and subscribe if you like what you find.
  4. 📹 I have a YouTube channel that I upload videos to weekly(ish). I'm still trying to figure out my focus there, but the topics tend to be around software engineering career development.
  5. 🐦 I tweet summary notes from articles and podcasts, and my thoughts about developer career growth.
  6. 🎤 I speak at meetups and conferences semi-regularly, on technical and soft-skills topics.

Fun Facts

  1. 🤓 I learn in public. This means that I try to document everything I'm learning, thinking and doing with the express purpose of providing value to others.
  2. 🇪🇸 I studied Spanish at university and studied abroad for 5 months in Madrid. Additional fun fact: I was technically homeless for my last ~6 weeks there.
  3. 👫 I'm a twin! This is usually my go-to fun fact in icebreaker situations. I think being a twin is special and privileged experience.

Standing Invitation for Coffee ☕️

If you want to talk tech, self improvement, or anything else, I'm down. If you find yourself in Raleigh and want to hang out, just let me know. I'll buy you a coffee and we can chat. Of course, depending on the state of the pandemic, we may have to get creative. (And yes, I did steal this from Ali.)
