I'm originally from a small town in Western Pennsylvania. I went to college at Cornell, and stumbled from there to New York City, where I lived for over a decade. Eventually my wife and I cracked up and moved to Los Angeles, where we currently reside with our son Oscar.
I joined Etsy when it was less than twenty very crazy people and left in 2014. At some point I worked on pretty much every feature and backend facility on the site. By the time I was ready to leave, I was mostly working on search, data, and writing text in English. I am very proud of my work here.
