My name’s Greg. I live in Chicago and serve as a developer evangelist at Twilio. I’m married to a beautiful woman, Rachel, without whom I wouldn’t have accomplished much of what you see on this site. Last November, I became a dad!
I have bipolar and ADHD and speak a lot about mental health in the tech community. I’m writing a book called Developers and Depression, and in 2013 I had the honor of speaking on the topic at the Business of Software conference. That 30 minutes on stage was one of the best things I’ve done with my life:
Developers and Depression
A collection of mental health resources.
Developer Evangelists and Burnout
How I manage to be a developer evangelist for Twilio and have a family at the same time.
I am a Christian and I support Gay Marriage
Why do Christians confuse legal marriage and church marriage?
Not Because it is Easy
Why brutal Chicago winters are a good thing.
Autoworkers of Our Generation
Developers have it pretty good right now. How long will that last?
My First Marathon
“I spent my 20s looking for shortcuts and ways to hack to the system. And in my 30s I’ve come to accept that that’s the hack — work hard, get better slowly over time.”
Wherein I assume that a couple is moving to SF because the man, not the woman, works in tech.
Code Like a Chef: Work Clean
What I learned about programming from my best friend, a world class chef.
The 25 hour day
Why is programming so hard?
What I learned about creativity while working on an organic dairy farm in the mountains of Spain.
Tales of Turkish hospitality.
