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 am a member of the Python Packaging Authority, a maintainer of urllib3, and contributor to several projects in the Python community.

I am a member of 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 face-to-face (email me), virtually (make an appointment using calendly), or on IRC (I am thea on Freenode).
