About me

I’m a freelance software developer and the author of Django for Beginners. I started my career as a book editor, have an MBA, and was an early employee at Quizlet. Since then I’ve worked at multiple early-stage startups in the Boston area and taught computer science at Williams College.

I’m also an avid reader and keep an online list of the books I’ve read. I’m always open to suggestions!



I publish a lot of open-source code on Github including:

  • DjangoX - starter framework for new Django projects
  • DRFX - starter framework for new Django Rest Framework projects
  • Awesome Django - curated list of awesome Django resources
