 Lewis Hoffman and I created Wagn, now Decko, together as a side project back in 2006.  Now, more than fifteen years later, I'm serving as chief architect for Decko and still actively developing it alongside Philipp Kühl, Gerry Gleason, and a broad community contributing ideas, inspiration, fixes, resources, and the occasional well-deserved kick in the pants.
A brief bio in bullets:
  • born a preacher's kid to a preacher's-kid preacher and his preacher's-kid music-teaching wife

  • one year teaching English in Russia, another studying cognitive sciences in Edinburgh
  • learned to program in DC suburb while commuting car-lessly in bike-unfriendly land
