I grew up in rural eastern Connecticut, and have lived all across the country: Bloomington Indiana, Austin, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco and now Oakland, California. I run a burgeoning startup for gardeners called SproutRobot, and I do web contract web development for other startups in the bay area.
Beyond that, I'm a passionate gardener. I love building things. This year I've build a cob oven, a chicken coop, a bunch of vegetable beds, and an herb spiral in my back yard. I love bicycling, and have ridden my bike from San Diego to Phoenix. I play the baritone ukulele and sing songs I write. I am always trying to expand my mind and learn from new people. I try to see the good in everyone, while still being honest about all the stuff in our world that we can improve.
I love cooking. I'm mostly vegan, but I'm flexible. I like to hike and backpack, I like good beer and I like brewing at home. Whenever I'm at the ocean I swim no matter how cold the water is. I can dance to anything, but I love dancing to hip hop.
My favorite movie is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind, my favorite musician is Fiona Apple, and my favorite food is definitely pizza.
