For the past three years I have been working in the Cloud Computing industry at Appirio and have been focusing for the last two years on our crowdsourcing group topcoder. My interests include Node, Heroku, Salesforce, developer tools, woodworking, hand tools and of course, microcontrollers. I recently put together a Prusa i3 Rep Rap printer from makerfarm and look forward to sharing some of the lessons I have learned.
I have an Engineering degree from the University of Illinois which has given me enough skills to solder and hack the things I think should be different. I reside in Downers Grove with my wife Sophie and our three children.
