Hello! My name is Ash Furrow. I'm a compassionate software developer from rural Canada, but now I live in New York. I sing and play guitar. I run. I even like to cook.

The first ten years of my career as a software developer are publicly documented (part one, part two). The tl;dr is that I built a few iPhone apps while in university, then got a scholarship to WWDC in 2010, then I moved around the world a bit, and now I lead Artsy's Mobile Experience team building our totally open source iOS app.
