Hi there. I’m Nathan, and I’ve been professionally writing software since 2012.

I’ve worked on distributed systems for most of my career. What most interests me – what gets me excited to solve problems in a distributed environment – is that often you’re faced with emergent behavior. A combination of factors (latency, request rate, host failure, network failure) can lead to unexpected outcomes.

I’ve worked at tiny (<5 people), medium (> 50, < 100) and huge (10k+) companies. My responsibilities have included building, deploying, managing, and selling software.

Along with Michael Perretta, I’m the co-founder of Docket, an app and web portal that lets you check in to your doctor’s office faster.
