— Turing complete with a stack of 0xdeadbeef


I’m a software developer in Oakland, California. I’m primarily an iOS developer, though I have other programming interests. My open source projects are on GitHub and my iOS libraries are on CocoaPods. My side projects can be found at Hexed Bits. I curate the Swift Weekly Brief newsletter and co-host the Swift Unwrapped podcast. I’m currently an iOS developer at PlanGrid. Previously, I’ve worked at Instagram and Rosetta Stone.

Outside of programming, my interests include cognitive science, philosophy, and avant-garde art. I drink coffee and tea. I enjoy barefoot trail running and body modification. You can often find me at punk, hardcore, and metal shows in the Bay Area.

More generally, I hope to contribute to a society that values community over hierarchy, self-determination over capitalist exploitation, and public ownership over private property.
