Hi, I’m RJ. I’m a software engineer living in Mountain View, CA. I grew up in Indianapolis with my parents Claudia and Tim, and my brother Will.

I enjoy climbing rocks, crafting software, and making things that glow.

Since an early age I’ve been obsessed with computers, programming, and electronics. As a child I wanted to uncover the mystery and learn how things worked. That drive took me to MIT where I spent many years peeling back layers of the onion. Now I love computers because of what you can create with them.

In high school and early university I maintained a blog. It’s best that those posts are forgotten :). I’m experimenting with writing articles on this site but if you want to know more about me your best bet is to follow me on Twitter.
