matthew ess (they/them)
i'm a 'software engineer'/'code monkey' by trade, currently employed by yelp inc in the engineering effectiveness department. my work is focused on improving the tooling used by other engineers at yelp to develop python services.
in my spare time, i try to research programming language theory and practice, hack on useful tools, and change the world. in reality, i spend a considerable amount of time consuming movies and television, but i'm always looking for inspiration and opportunities to pursue my passions.
