Heyo!

My name's

Ryan Epp

. I'm a software engineer and data scientist from Philadelphia.

I'm a big fan of cities, bicycling, politics, early punk bands, 80's cult films, and anything with an engine in it. I used to be a an engineer on the Kindle Team at Amazon. Nowadays, I'm working on a small software company I started called Poeko. In my free time, you can find me skateboarding, riding/fixing mopeds, and adventuring with my girlfriend, Emma.
