I am employed by Stripe as a software engineer on the Integration Experience team, working on the product documentation platform. In my free time, I contribute to open source software and infrequently write articles for various internet publications.
Before joining Stripe, I worked in evangelism roles at RethinkDB and Xamarin. I used to be a contributing editor at Ars Technica, where I covered Linux, software development, and emerging web standards. I’ve written articles for a range of other publications, including Linux Journal, Linux Magazine, and Jax. I’ve also presented talks at a number of conferences and meetups.
I’m known in the Linux community for creating an open source social networking client called Gwibber. Several Ubuntu releases included Gwibber in the default installation. At the peak of its popularity, it had roughly half a million monthly active users. I handed off Gwibber maintainership to Canonical after leading the project for three years.
