Hey! I’m Alex. (beardy Alex pictured right 😄)

I am daddy to one silly and bright boy and a software engineer over at Stitch Fix. I got my start in programming by playing with Linux off and on, and wanting to learn how to make an Arduino do something cool. Pretty soon, I found Why’s Poignant Guide to Ruby, and that’s where I fell in love with Ruby. It was a slow start learning programming, but with lots of self learning and some helpful mentors along the way, it became more than a hobby.

When I’m not attempting my best animal noises with my son and wife, I’m usually found in a coffee shop, eating Tex Mex, or trying to contribute to Open Source projects(notably Ruby on Rails and Diesel). From time to time, I like to blog, although I currently have more drafts than published blogs. I also gave a talk at Railsconf, and I hope to give more soon. You can find me on Twitter(mostly retweeting others) or on Github.
