          <h2>Me</h2>
          <p>Hi! I'm Tim. I grew up in Loveland, Colorado, but I currently reside in
            Brooklyn, New York. I frequently go by &quot;stum&quot; as my life has many times
            involved being a part of groups with numerous Tims.</p>
          <p>In November of 2013, I started working for
            <a href="//www.hudson-trading.com">Hudson River Trading</a> on the
            <a href="//www.hudson-trading.com/stories/stum/">Trading Operations</a> team
45
            (a very industry specific role).</p>

          <p>From August of 2012 to October of 2013, I worked for Abine, an internet privacy

            startup, managing their virtualized infrastructure.</p>

          <p>In June of 2012, I graduated from <a href="http://web.mit.edu">MIT</a> with a
            degree in Computer Science and Engineering. I was also a member of
            the <a href="http://web.mit.edu/gordonelp/">MIT-Gordon Engineering
              Leadership Program</a>.</p>
          <p>I describe myself thusly: athlete. command, achiever, analytical, deliberative,
            maximizer. curious. cynical, conscientious, tenacious, outgoing. tall.</p>
          <p>I am passionate about the craft of software engineering, and I prefer working on
            codebases with deliberate design, useful commit messages and clean histories. I
            firmly care about minimizing unnecessary code complexity and technical debt. I
            believe that empathy is a core engineering value.</p>
          <p>I find success by remembering that there are no technical solutions to social
            problems.</p>

          <h2>My Work</h2>
          <p>I currently work on the Trading Operations team at Hudson River Trading (HRT). As a
            team, we are responsible for managing the production trading environment. That ranges
            from real-time monitoring to post-trade development. As a team, we have to write all of
            our own tools, which are primarily developed in Python.</p>
          <p>One of my favorite things about HRT is the wealth of knowledge of my coworkers and
            their willingness to share that knowledge. I knew very little C++ before coming to HRT,
            and I still wouldn't say that I &quot;have C++ experience,&quot; but I have made many
            contributions in C++ when needed. HRT is really a great place to learn.</p>
          <p>The best part about my job is that it's a highly technical role but isn't always
            programming.</p>

          <h2>Lives Past</h2>
          <p>Some things I used to work on:</p>
          <p>Abine &mdash;
            Most of the things I worked on were not what I was expecting to do, but generalists
            thrive at a startup! I developed infrastructure automation (in Chef) while learning
            how the new world of the cloud works. I also made substantial contributions to the
            organizational and technical processes to reduce technical debt and human involvement.
            I engineered some internal tools, mostly around analytics and reporting.</p>
          <p><a href="//isawyou.mit.edu/">I Saw You MIT</a> &mdash;
            In December of 2009, I co-founded this site with my friend Keone. I learned a lot
            about internet communities. At the height of its popularity, we received 3000
            visits a day.</p>
          <p><a href="//www.eecs.mit.edu/outreach/deecs">Discover Electrical Engineering
              and Computer Science</a> &mdash;
            A <a href="//uaap.mit.edu/first-year-mit/orientation/freshman-pre-orientation-programs-fpops">
              Freshman Pre-orientation Program</a> sponsored by MIT's department of Electrical
            Engineering and Computer Science. I served as a staff member in 2009 and as one of two
            coordinators in 2010 and 2011.</p>
          <p>MIT Greek Life &mdash;
            In February of 2009, I was initiated as a brother in The Bond of
            the <a href="http://phi-delts.mit.edu/">Massachusetts Gamma Chapter</a> of
            the <a href="//www.phideltatheta.org">Phi Delta Theta</a> fraternity.
            During my tenure, I served as the chapter's steward, network administrator,
            warden (ritualist) and new member educator.
            <br />
            I served the MIT <a href="//ifc.mit.edu">InterFraternity Council</a> for a
            little over a year, first as the interim PR chair, then as the Vice President.
            In the spring of my senior year, I was awarded the Frederick Gardiner Fassett, Jr.
            Award for service to the MIT Fraternity, Sorority and Independent Living Groups
            community.</p>
          <p>Teaching at MIT &mdash;
            Some of my favorite experiences from school were the times where I was able to
            share what I knew while furthering my own knowledge. I served as a lab assistant
            for <a href="http://web.mit.edu/6.01/www/">6.01</a>, MIT's introductory EE/CS course
            and <a href="http://web.mit.edu/6.s189/www/">6.189</a>, an introductory Python
            course taught during January. I was also a teaching assistant
            for <a href="https://stellar.mit.edu/S/course/6/sp12/6.170/"> 6.170</a>, a
            course in medium-scale software engineering.</p>
          <p>Eidetic Technologies (AKA Tech by Tim) &mdash;
            Inspired by early memories of trying to teach my grandfather to play Klondike
            Solitaire on a computer, I founded and ran a not-for-profit company to provide free
            tech support to seniors in Northern Colorado during my Junior and Senior years of
            high school. I made around 200 house calls to 124 different homes. I received a
            grant from a local family to defray the costs of providing this service.

          <h2>Hobbies, et cetera</h2>
          <p>I've occasionally been accused of being over-committed. I prefer to think of it
            as being varied in my interests.</p>
          <p>I swam competitively from 6 to 22. I was twice state champion in high school and
            received a number of accolades in college, including being named MIT freshman
130 131 132 133 134 135 136
            athlete of the year and receiving two All-American titles.</p>
          <p>I competed in the 2016 and 2017 <a href="//nyctri.com">NYC Triathlons</a>.
            I also enjoy running competitively (5Ks, 10Ks and a half-marathon) and novelty endurance
            events (e.g. Tough Mudder, Muddy Buddy). I organized HRT's first ever entry (including
            tryouts!) into the
            <a href="//squaremilerelay.com/new-york">Bloomberg Square Mile Relay</a>, where we
            placed third. I have swam races in both the Hudson and East Rivers.</p>
