I am currently a full-time software engineer at a startup in the bay area where I bring up and maintain our server infrastructure in the hopes that as our users scale our site doesn't explode. It keeps me busy at odd hours but wouldn't trade the experience for anything.
I have an Miniature Australian Shepherd/Pembroke Corgi cross who is my all-too-handsome partner in crime. The majority of my free time is spent running all over San Francisco trying to keep up with him. The rest of my time is spent helping various animal welfare and gender rights organizations, eternally trying to shore up the wholes in my knowledge of classic literature, and watching painfully bad television.
I love to cook but only for other people. If left to my own devices I will make bottom shelf pasta 7 days a week ensuring that my dog food budget exceeds my own.
