About me


My name is Matthew Lee Hinman (I usually go by "Lee"), I'm a software developer in the Denver Amsterdam Denver area who enjoys open source software, Elasticsearch, Emacs, and coffee. Welcome!

I'm an active contributor in the open-source Elasticsearch and Clojure community, and enjoy working in teams to solve challenging and interesting problems. I care a lot about code quality and release the majority of my extracurricular code as open source.
