ABOUT ME

Hey there! I'm Steve, I'm a full-stack engineer based in beautiful (and sometimes foggy) San Francisco, California. I specialize in building delightful experiences on mobile and performant and scalable backend services.

I currently work at Braintree, where I help power the next generation of businesses accept payments in any form. When I'm not at my computer, you can find me out taking photos, on the tennis court, or tending to our smoker out back. Check out my recent experience below, and don't hesitate to get in touch!
