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 resume, if you're into that sorta thing.

I rock climb.

I took it up in my 30s, and it gives me a great excuse to travel to beautiful places across the country and around the world. It's an awesome thing, and I've written about it here & there.

I’m a mama.

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