I strive to create things on the computer that are simultaneously
novel, interesting, and useful.
I am currently known for:
creating Online Python
Tutor, a free educational tool for learning computer
programming, which has been used by over 500,000 people in
over 165 countries,
writing The Ph.D. Grind, the first
known detailed account of an entire Ph.D. experience, which has been
downloaded over 300,000 times,
and creating one of the first Ph.D. dissertations on
software tools for computational scientists; one such tool, CDE, has been used by over 10,000 people.
Years before I began sharing my writing and software publicly, I originally created this website to showcase my
childhood photography hobby.
