About myself

My name is Chris: I hate paper1, love computers, and want the world to be more digital, open, and secure.

I consult companies at 0xA on development and how they should use the cloud.2

When I am not programming I’m probably doom-scrolling on Twitter or taking photos of my cats.

My GitHub is github.com/chrisportela. My email is “chris” at this domain.

  1. I greatly prefer digital processes and workflows. I think, except for a few specific things, paper is greatly inferior to digital and strive to scan, prevent, and remove all paper in my life. ↩︎

  2. Pronounced “oh-ex-ay” ↩︎
