About April

I've been writing software since 2002, when I first got some ASCII "dice" to "roll" on a screen. I've been hooked ever since.

Here's my LinkedIn profile if you're interested in where I've worked and volunteered.

I believe we have a duty as technologists—as humans, really—to leave this world better than we found it.

If we all care a little more about the other living beings on this planet, we'll get more readable code, more friendly interactions, and a more peaceful world.

I strive to cultivate compassion in my own life and encourage others to embrace it as well.

This is why I started my company, Compassionate Coding to bring emotional intelligence to the tech industry.

I'm passionate about animal rights. Feel free to ask me about going vegan!

In recent years, I've also developed a love for long-distance trail running. I wrote about my journey here.
