Hi, I’m Sam.

I’m a computer science student at The University of Alabama and a senior software engineer at The Nine. I write about coding, tech, history, politics, and whatever I’m interested in at the moment. During my free time, I knit / crochet, shitpost on Twitter, and learn / try new things.

Experience

I’m a frontend engineer, but I’m comfortable working across the entire stack. I’m very comfortable with TypeScript / JavaScript, Node, and Elixir. I’m currently working on writing a book about TypeScript.

I’m proficient in these frontend frameworks:

and I’m proficient in these backend frameworks:

I’ve been programming since I was 11. I started programming professionally in 2018 with my first internship / contract position, and have done various internships and part-time positions since. Most recently, I took a semester off from school to join The Nine as a senior software engineer working on developer tools and an internal CMS.

For my full professional history, see my Polywork.
