Hi there! I am a developer at We Also Walk Dogs, the company behind ActionKit, a powerful online organizing software powering the campaigns of progressive organizations such as the ACLU, MoveOn.org, SumOfUs, 350.org, Everytown for Gun Safety, NRDC, Indivisible, Beto O'Rourke for Texas, and more.
Previously, I ran A/B tests to spread meaningful viral content and was a front-end developer at MoveOn.org.
I am an open source maintainer for CodeBuddies, a project I founded in 2014. It is 100% volunteer and driven by a bunch of amazing contributors, and also transparently non-profit thanks to the Open Collective. The project was awarded an Awesome Foundation grant in 2018. More details about its mission here.
I doubled majored in Economics and Public Policy at Duke University, but fell in love with software development my last semester, when I convinced a professor to give me independent study credit to spend waaay too many hours building a social network platform to connect college students interested in civic impact and volunteerism.
I enjoy talking to other developers, and am always learning.
