Biography

I’ve been working with Ruby and Perl to build web apps, configuration management software (currently with Puppet Labs) and script my life since I graduated college with a degree in Applied Computational Mathematical Sciences (ACMS) with a focus on discrete math and algorithms (the title wrapped 3 lines on the diploma and really just meant I couldn’t pick just one nerdy major).

I’m particularly interested in writing easy to read and understand code after being forced to read the horrific code others have produced and left me to maintain. I think good testing practices go a long way to helping here.

In my non-nerd time I enjoy hiking, rock climbing, traveling, meditating and recently playing with my baby daughter.
