Open Source veteran, available for hire!
- Open Source advocate and notable author since the 1990s, e.g. I
unittest.pyfor the Python standard library around 2000
- Contributed to many hundreds (!) of repositories in various languages
- Was in the top 100 most active GitHub developers worldwide for several years
- Largely built an open source community project from nothing to having thousands of contributors and 0.3B downloads

Beyond Open Source, I'm a joyful product-and-team-first startup veteran and founder across many industry sectors, as well as an experienced and popular people leader, programming language nerd, consultant and freelancer.
In recent years I've alternated between hands-on technical direction of challenging projects, and growing/nurturing technical orgs of 60-90 engineers.
I'm available for hire, so feel free to get in touch.
