Ruby developer at Red Hat, ManageIQ core committer, a maintainer of octobox.io, and occasional conference speaker. I spend too much money on keyboards and backpacking gear.

Hi. I'm Chris.

I’m a Ruby developer at Red Hat on the ManageIQ core team. ManageIQ is the open source cloud management platform behind Red Hat CloudForms. I’ve enjoyed working remotely since 2014 and call the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota my home.

I like working with the full web stack and contributing to the open source community. I’ve spoken at major conferences as close as the American Midwest and as far as Kyoto, Japan.

Outside of programming I love backpacking, hockey, and performing/listening to music. Above all I simply aspire to be a good human being.
