I've been a web developer at Google since 2013, where my
main focus has been to improve the web performance of
YouTube. I've also coauthored the book
as a low-level walkthrough of web
performance analysis. My previous job was a
contractor with Scripps Networks, where I was a
Performance Engineer tasked with analyzing the
performance of their Food Network, HGTV, and Travel
Channel websites. I'm also a three-time Velocity
Conference speaker and have presented at several web
performance meetups including the NY, Boston, and SF
groups as well as the Web Perf Days unconf. I'm also an
event organizer with the SF web perf meetup group.
I blog regularly about web performance and front end engineering and
I'm the creator of two open source projects: trunk8
(an intelligent text truncation plugin to jQuery that cuts off text based on pixel width, not character count),
and red dwarf (a Google Maps heatmap of GitHub repository stars).
I'm also writing a book!
