I’m Curtis, a lover of Github’s Newsfeed, and AWS' Spot Instances. I’ve spent the last 5 years going on campus tours at hackathons, working on a few side projects, and writing a weekly newsletter about project ideas. This site is my Yellow Brick Road in progress.

I just want to say thank you to everyone who offered me a position to work for them. You've made work more than just work and I can't imagine learning how to be a developer without your decisions to take me as an intern. So thank you.

Hackathons Are the Largest Part of My Life

They mean this much to me because I didn't know that I liked programming until my third or fourth hackathon.

And I'm grateful to be fortunate to live in an area where there are many because I've met my closest friends through hackathons.
