Location

Fully remote from Maine, USA.

Professional

Building web applications. Currently working on a medical information-management portal in React TypeScript. We're a small startup, so I practice coding, design, and project management.

Writing a technical book about automated testing for early-career engineers. First draft is in progress, currently 26,015 words to my goal of 75,000. Sound interesting? Let's talk!

Blogging, with 174 posts published. Latest was How to Deliver Code Every Day.

Organizing the Maine JS Meetup. Our next event is lightning talks on April 9. I recently gave a lightning talk on Flexbox.

Volunteering at Code Platoon. Teaching a few PostgreSQL workshops per year and mentoring.

Personal

Sitting with the Northern Light Zen Center. I recently completed a four-day personal retreat.

Building a raised-bed garden. Caring for a lot of (too many?) houseplants.

Reading Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner. Tracking the rest on Goodreads.
