I’m a software developer in Victoria, BC. I’m on the Ruby Architecture team at GitHub and on the Rails committer team.
I’ve made some minimalist unixy tools: fzy is a better fuzzy finder for the terminal, meh is an image viewer using Xlib.
A selection of projects I’ve worked on: Rails, Solidus, curl-to-ruby, discard, execjs-fastnode, dkim, ttytest, fast_sqlite.
