I am a VP of Engineering at Sotheby’s and was previously VP of Engineering at Timber, Glitch, CTO-in-residence at Microsoft, founder and CTO at Empatico, CTO at Kickstarter, VP of Engineering at Venmo, and an early employee at Docker and Puppet. I have also published eleven technical books.

My interests include cooking, wine, political theory, photojournalism, philosophy, poetry. I enjoy good conversation, laughter, reading, music, and my cats. Things that piss me off are jingoism, bad grammar, violence, and cucumber.
