I am a full stack software engineer at ActBlue, where I am working tools that help organizations and politicians reach small-dollar donors, and where donors can easily give for causes they care about! I'm on the core team of a front-end JavaScript framework called Ember.js, where I help maintain repositories, write new content, and serve in a leadership capacity.

I enjoy rapid prototyping, JavaScript, CSS, HTML, video tutorial shooting and editing, mockups, user testing, and API design. I aim to create accessible web apps and build inclusive, healthy engineering teams.


Work projects include Cardstack Themer, Cardstack Framework and Builder, Cardstack documentation, BioBright.com website, BioBright's DarwinSyn Platform (web plus native), BioBright's DarwinSpeech, and BioBright's scientific research software for DARPA (voice controlled interfaces plus data vis).
