My pronouns are he / him. I currently reside in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I write about intermediate and advanced Python, API design, and Internet technologies. If you're interested in any of these topics you can read articles on my blog.
I maintain and contribute to many open source projects, especially in the HTTP and networking space for Python. Most notably I'm the lead maintainer of urllib3, an HTTP client library that is the most downloaded package on the Python Package Index with over 4 billion downloads.
I'm a senior Software Engineer at Elastic working as maintainer of the Python API clients for services like Elasticsearch, Enterprise Search, and more.
