My GitHub Desk
From a young age, I’ve been fascinated with software. I used to sit with my family IBM PC with 8086 processor learning DOS and unscrewing the lid to look at the insides. Since then I knew, I wanted to design and build software.
After studying Computer Science in school and graduating in 2006, I decided to move out to San Francisco, CA to pursue my tech career. My first big break came when I met a small crew building a social site called Pownce. I decided to build a 3rd-party Adobe AIR client for it which eventually became Pownce desktop v2.
In the following years I worked with a number of interesting startups and great people Cake Financial, Ning, Redbeacon and SimpleGeo. In late 2011, I started my job at GitHub working on the website. While there, I have shipped so many things of which I’m proud.
I'm not currently looking for a new gig, but I also can't predict the future. Drop your email in my newsletter. In the event my current situation changes, I'll send a note to the list and we can talk.
