My name, as you may have gathered from the URL is Jeff Ammons. I consult with various companies on various internet and software related things.

Professionally, I have worked in a handful of venture backed startups including Brigade.com, Simple Energy, Mahalo.com, and Slack (and my own bootstrapped startup). I’ve worked as an engineer, product manager, CTO, engineering manager, VP of Engineering, and founder. I love helping make teams more efficient at building products and more effective at building the right product to achieve their mission and delight customers.

I like learning new things and I’m always interested in exploring what life throws at me. As a result, I’ve picked up a number of interests/hobbies. Here’s a non-comprehensive list of things I do with varying degrees of success: I sing opera and dance Tango, I’m a certified CrossFit Trainer (also with the mobility certification), I can converse in Thai, Spanish, and German (but they’re rusty), I’m a nutrition consultant, I like to cook, I used to co-host This Week in Android (http://thisweekin.com/thisweekin-android/), I try to write short stories and the occasional poem and have recently been attempting to sketch things. I try to write songs, and I’m trying to blog.

This blog is really my attempt to compose my own ideas about the world and maybe share them with others who may be interested. I’d love to hear your thoughts on my thoughts though, so feel free to comment. Hope it’s marginally enlightening!
