Bio

Greetings, program! I'm the founder of Gratipay, a way to give money every week to people and teams you believe in. Gratipay launched in June, 2012, and as of October, 2014, we have about 3,000 active users exchanging about $13,000 per week. Gratipay is funded on Gratipay.

I run Gratipay as openly as possible, and I helped launch the Open Company Initiative to associate with other companies committed to creating value through openness.

I'm an active programmer and designer. I have strong interests in philosophy, religion, and music. I started a small publishing company called Logstown. I live outside Pittsburgh with my wife and four kids.
