I am a software engineer at Ksplice, a software startup in Cambridge, MA with a subscription service for rebootless kernel updates on Linux.
My interests include the Internet, networking, low-level systems engineering, relational databases, tinkering on electronics projects, and contributing to and helping other people contribute to open source software.
I am an organizer for the Boston Python Meetup, a 2**10+ member Python user group. We hold several events each month geared towards Python programmers of all experience levels. Our recurringBoston Python Workshop, run jointly with the OpenHatch project, has been hugely successful at bringing new and diverse people into the local Python community and inspiring other outreach events across the country.
Cambridge has fantastic opportunities for local Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) outreach, and I've had the pleasure of putting my science and engineering background to use volunteering with a number of local schools and organizations.
