Engineering Manager, GitHub


Nathan Stocks is an "Engineering Manager of Git Storage“:https://github.com/cleancut at GitHub by day, and an indie game developer by night. He likes growing maple trees from seed, playing frisbee, spending time with his wife and kids, eating food, and pretending to be an expert on things he knows little about. Someday he would like to go fully independent with a small team of smart, happy people.
