~hi i'm nathan nice to meet you~

I'm a programmer originally from Edmonton, Canada, now working on HTTP proxying at fastly dot com in San Francisco. Before that, I hacked on language runtimes at twitter dot com.

Originally a music major, I received my B.Sc. from the University of Alberta and my M.Sc. from the University of British Columbia, where I worked with Andy Warfield on improving processor cache performance through hypervisor-level binary rewriting. In addition to low-level systems work, some of my other other technical interests include algorithmic and computer-composed music, and the intersections of computational photography and computer graphics.

I'm found around the web mostly on twitter; I additionally have a perfunctory presence on github and bitbucket.
