Hi, my name is Mark.

I am a software developer, designer, and teacher.

When I'm not teaching, I write software. Mostly I make web applications with Ruby on Rails and React, but lately I've also been working with Elm and Phoenix, and dabbling in Electron.

A few things about me:

I really enjoy thinking about user interfaces and the scientific and medical applications of software.

I'm reflexively wary of companies that have a lot to say about "disrupting the market" but little to say about making ethical decisions with respect to their users and community.

I like companies that focus on diversity and inclusivity. If you have an office that stocks free beer but not free tampons, side-eye.

My favorite programming tools, languages, and user interfaces are the ones that are friendly, helpful, and meet people where they are.
