I'm Doug.

Most recently, I was an engineer on the data infrastructure team at Discord. Watching the company grow from 70 people to over 400 in a few short years was an amazing experience.

Previously, I was lead engineer on the API team at Twilio and had a front row seat as we grew from 100 people to public company.

Before I moved to San Francisco and then Denver, I grew up in North Carolina and went to school at Georgia Tech where I majored in Computer Science.

I began school as an Applied Mathematics major before realizing I was spending all of my free time programming so I switched to Computer Science. I believe this is one of the best decisions I've made in my life.

Before Discord, I built OS X apps, won hackathons, and worked on one of the best RESTful API's in the world.

I've written a few things about programming. Check them out.


I used to run a lot! I started running in 7th grade, ran all through high school, and eventually spent four incredible years on the varsity Track and Field and Cross Country teams at Georgia Tech.
