Hi, I'm Tim 👋

I'm a software engineer with experience developing full-stack, cloud-native applications. I write code that is human-friendly, testable and robust. I love learning and do my best work in teams. Recently I co-created Seymour, an open-source, easy-to-configure active monitoring tool that enables continuous testing of production API endpoints.

Active Monitoring for API endpoints

Seymour is an open-source, easy-to-configure active monitoring tool.

Seymour lets you test production API endpoints by configuring and scheduling custom HTTP requests originating from up to 22 global locations.

Make assertions about the availability, performance and correctness of endpoint responses. When something does go wrong, you’ll be alerted by email, Discord or Slack so that you can fix bugs before they impact customers.

Seymour's infrastructure is easily deployed on an AWS account with two CLI commands.

A bit more about me

tim and boys

I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area but have called Colorado home since 2013. I'm a husband and father of two boys. When I'm not coding or chasing my kids around, you can often find me outdoors, hopefully riding a snowboard 🏂 or bike 🚴‍♂️. Although when the 49ers are playing, I'm probably yelling at my TV 😅. If you enjoy Hunter S. Thompson's writing I bet we would be fast friends!

I started my professional life as an accountant but found my calling in software development. Nothing energizes me more than building things that people find useful. I care deeply about the end-user and get inspired by any opportunity to make the user experince or workflow better, if only incrementally. I'm at my best when tackling big, hairy problems alongside colleagues. When time permits, I love exploring and tinkering with new technologies!
