About me

I’m a senior programmer on the Security, Infrastructure, and Performance team at Basecamp, makers of the all-new HEY. We work to keep Basecamp products safe, reliable, and fast.

I joined the Ruby on Rails core team in 2018. Though I try to work on as much of the framework as I can, I focus on Active Storage, Action Mailbox, and Action Text. I’m devoted to the web and open-source software.

I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2016 with a BS in Computer Science. I served as a founding officer of the Pitt Computer Science Club.

I’m Deaf and the son of two Deaf parents. I have progressive bilateral hearing loss, wear two hearing aids, and use American Sign Language.
