I'm an academic director at The Iron Yard where I write curriculum to help adult career-changers become successful developers. I previously worked in the Center for Data Science at RTI International, building dashboards with D3 and React and creating agent-based models with NetLogo.
I'm helping Don't Waste Durham, a local group working to reduce consumer waste, with their Green To Go program by building their web and mobile applications.
I'm writing a new role-playing game which I've been writing about in my newsletter.
