An occasional blog on programming

About Me

I live in Brooklyn and work for Hacker School. If you like this blog, you’ll probably like Hacker School!

I write mostly Python, and I love silly hacks. I’ve given some talks about Python internals. Python internals are very cool.

Before Hacker School, I studied Astronomy & Physics at Yale. I did a research project on blazars, a type of supermassive black hole, and was a co-author on a paper about our data. I worked in finance for a few years before I became a programmer.

You can find me on github and twitter.
