I’m a programmer, designer, student, and entreprenuer.

I’m currently working on Stash, the personal finance mobile app that makes you a money-saving badass. Previously, I worked at Segment as one of the first engineers, during which time we scaled to over 50 billion requests a month, and millions in revenue. Before that, I worked at Basecamp where I worked one-on-one with Jason Fried and Ryan Singer and prototyped new ideas, apps, and interface concepts.

I hack on open source software nearly every day. I believe that anything that can be open source, should be.

I grew up driving tractors, milking cows, and running through corn fields with my yellow lab, Mindy. I now live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
