About Me

A few words...

Hi, my name is Sean Ormiston.

I like software that solves problems. I like designs that foster clear thinking, and I admire an open-source ethos where tools are specific and knowledge is shared.

As a newly graduated classical musician in 2012, I relocated to Brazil for 4 years of performance work, learning the language as I went. When I returned to the US, I started work as a logistics coordinator for an international performing arts agency.

As an information worker who had to multi-task across the globe, and anticipate clients' needs with great detail, I began writing my first Python scripts to create efficiencies and eliminate human error during repetitive tasks. I began looking at every operation in terms of its constants and variables...and thinking about the kind of software I wish I'd had.

When I'm not coding, I enjoy reading science fiction and history, foreign films, kettlebell training, and keeping up chops on my instrument - the double bass.
