The mind is made of mindless components, and the magic spark is not present in each component, but in the way they work together. Marvin Minsky
I design and build user-interfaces and distributed platforms on the cloud.
My first program was lotus 123. I scored 100 and remember sitting in the lab of my high school after hours. In college, I got paid to write code by a few friends who were lazy to finish their own projects, and knew right then I want to code for a living.I value software craftsmanship, the pursuit of design, and the poetic moment. With nearly two decades of programming and web design experience, I've built software for creative agencies, publishing companies, large banks and fintech, and early-stage tech startups. In 2013, after more than a decade of wrting professional software, I fell in love with Clojure, a modern dialect of lisp, that I began to like programming again. We programmers are weird sometimes, we like to learn new languages that expand our minds.
Once you understand lisp, you get wings for the rest of your career. It was true for me anyway.
I ran a boutique consulting studio for six years, facjure , working mostly remote, living my dream and having more time for my art projects. I traveled and backpacked to a dozen countries. And one day Covid19 hit in 2020, I reprioritized my life and work, and I started working for a large tech company.
I also speak five human languages and my mother tongue is a dialect of sanksrit.
As an opensource committer I try to be active on github and enjoy reading libraries. Read one hundred books, write one says a liberal arts college. The same is true for programming. I enjoy coding, like I enjoy writing.
My ongoing project in my studio is an artificial editor for writers on the browser. If you love literature and lisp, let's meet in MomA or go for a hike in redwoods to talk about them.
I'm also on LinkedIn.
