Born and raised in Oregon, Randall A. Gordon enjoys all manner of things which speak using 1s and 0s, especially those which are connected to the interwebs. Beyond code, his hobbies include desktop fabrication (small scale CNC milling), DJing, music production, photography, fashion, snowboarding and mountain biking. He landed in Portland in 2013 eager to join its vibrant tech scene and can often be found at local Meetups—if you see him don't be shy, say "hi"!

In another life, I am a musician. I've always loved music because it represents a synthesis of the concreteness of math and the ambiguity of language. Programming is the same way.

When I feel a void for purely creative coding, I turn to the Processing language.
Marc relocated to Denver from Orlando, Florida, where he got a degree in economics. Prior to software development he started a BBQ food cart, worked as a product analyst at a startup company, and provided sales support in a more corporate setting. Marc proudly learned his technical chops from the Turing School of Software and Design, where he continues to mentor new students at the school. When he's not programming, you'll find Marc climbing things, dreaming up side projects, or yelling at a TV with the Orlando Magic or New York Giants game on.
