✌️ Hello ✌️

I'm Lucas.

Originally from sunny Southern California, I lived in San Francisco for a while before moving to Berlin, Germany in 2014.

I've been working in the tech industry for more than a decade, first in customer support and operations, and then as a developer and dev team lead. I consider myself a generalist, interested in creating useful, meaningful products in a people-friendly way. I like trying to see the big picture and figuring out the best way to get there: simply, easily, and creatively.

As a manager and team lead I believe that happy, fulfilled people do the best work. I'm interested in building sustainable and empathetic systems to make this happen. I've set up design systems, mentored interns and junior developers, built systems for feedback and career/personal advancement, and documented all of this to make sure it's useful in the future.

In my free time I'm interested in creative coding, pen plotting, Twitter bots, generative art, dogspotting, weightlifting, basketball, rap music, disco music, and theme parks.

💾 About This Site

The front page is an emoji/HTML art piece vaguely inspired by Conway's Game Of Life. Otherwise it's a pretty simple static site generated with Jekyll, with the code stored on Github and automatically deployed via Github + Netlify. Thank you for visiting.
