Exegesis is a tool for nuance and understanding in the absolutes found on bikesheds everywhere, such as "replace all vars with const" and "arrow functions will save your eternal soul".

I want to make art. I’ll even use a paintbrush, if it’s absolutely necessary.
Before I got a “real job” [Thanks, Dad…], I made video games. To the chagrin of my fellow consultants at Test Double, I still cling to many of the bottom-up, test-after habits I developed while pushing pixels and building digital worlds.

When not in my Cave, I co-organize the tech meetup for a small city in coastal Washington, pursue the odd hobby, and chase my partner and 2 kids.
