Amateur video artist; professional Javascript lover.

Bushwick (US) || Berlin (DE)

I started out as a web designer and originally learned Javascript to find out whether the devs I was working with were lying to me about how hard things were to build. I fell in love with code and never looked back, especially once I found out how computer languages were designed and implemented. I like thinking about errors and how language ergonomics can free developers to be creative.

At Igalia, I get to specify and implement Javascript with the compilers team.

When not working, I write SVGs in realtime with my live-code band Codie; create compression-challenging video art; and swim.
