Hi, I’m Betsy. I’m an artist, writer, developer and climber living in Chicago.

I build web sites.

I’m a full-stack web developer specializing in JavaScript, CSS, HTML and Python. For more than a decade, I've coded for brands like Goose Island, Kraft, Best Buy and IBM; organizations like hospitals, schools and non-profits; and for the last several years, online retailer, Threadless. Here's my out-of-date resume, if you're into that sorta thing.

I rock climb.

I took it up in my 30s, and it takes me to beautiful places like Spain, France, Kentucky, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, California, Colorado, Texas, and Greece. It's an awesome thing, and I've written about it here & there.

I’m a mama.

He’s five years old and the best of the best of the best.
