Hello. I'm Kelan Champagne.

I like to play around on the computer and write code to solve problems. I especially enjoying building apps with polished user interfaces on the Mac and iOS. I started learning Objective-C and Cocoa in 2002, and haven't looked back. I also enjoy tinkering with web stuff. Recently, I have been excitedly learning Swift and am looking forward to using it more places (e.g. on the server).

I live in San Francisco, and work at Upthere (mostly on the iOS and macOS apps). Before that, I was at Found (where I built the Mac app) and Sonos (where I worked on the Mac, iPhone, and iPad apps). In a past life, I designed and built mechanical things at a plasma physics research lab. I was this close to being a literal rocket scientist.
