James Sulak

Hi folks,

I’m a engineering manager in Houston, Texas. I lead humans who build things from bits, currently as VPE at FlightAware. I write at Box Kite Machine.

A long time ago, I studied at Rice University. My hobbies include photography, running, reading history, and keeping up with my three small children. My preferred editor is Emacs, although I’ve been known to use VS Code.

I’m always happy to hear from folks. Drop a note!
