I am a software developer based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I arrived here via Southern California and before that, East Africa. I have spent more than a decade working at my craft in all kinds of environments: publicly traded companies, small businesses, and startups amongst others.
My approach to work is inspired by 3 things1 I believe must exist in good software:
To serve some given purpose
Durability under use
Aesthetic and functional beauty
I have always been interested in many things. As a programmer I like syntactical constructs and language. As an aesthete I am an architecture and design enthusiast. Both my background and education give me a penchant for literature, economics, history, and public policy. As a thinker I can’t evade brushes with the philosophical.
1This idea was originally purposed for architecture by Vitrivius. I encountered them in the excellent book The Look of Architecture by Witold Rybczynski.
