Thea Flowers

Hello! I am a Pythonista and open source advocate. It is my mission in life to empower developers of all backgrounds and experience levels using Python and open source software and hardware.

I'm the creator of Nox, the co-chair of PyCascades 2019, the lead maintainer of urllib3, and a member of the Python Packaging Authority and Packaging Working Group.

I'm employed as a Staff Engineer on Google Cloud Platform's wonderful Developer Relations team where I work on API client libraries and community outreach, including occasionally giving talks.

I am also a maker and amateur costume prop builder, which I do in collaboration with Skeleton Buddy Costumes.

I am located in beautiful Seattle, Washington. I am available to chat about Python and OSS over email, video chat, and in person at various Python events. Reach out if you'd like to chat at anything related to Python or APIs.
