Hi, I'm Blake Smith. Since I was 10 years old I've programmed computers. I have worked on everything from pixel pushing to pointer arithmetic; on high profile products, as well as large support infrastructure. Most of my work revolves around web technologies and creating backend data systems. My areas of technical focus are around distributed systems and simple and scalable cloud stacks.
I live and work in Chicago, IL USA. I love to read, write, run, and spend time with my wife and family.
