Welcome from Nick Hehr, aka HipsterBrown.

I am an empathetic community member, full-stack developer, and dev advocate currently residing in New York City, where I enjoy biking and bouldering whenever possible. In my free time, I help maintain various open source projects including xs-dev & Robo Wizard and contribute to TC53. My mustache is just a figment of your imagination.

Please explore my site freely and with an open mind, from resources for studying Empathy to some examples of my open source work via GitHub. The occasional thought or topic that can't fit in 140 characters can be found in my Musings blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
