About me, Jeff Wainwright

I’m software engineer at Dollar Shave Club. I write software because I’m passionate about making things, learning and contributing to society. Software allows me to do those things everyday. Unrelated to software, I enjoy riding bikes, running, and surfing.

The profile handle “yowainwright” is derived from conversations I had with my dad in his woodshop growing up. I would sit on a workbench and tell him about my dreams for the future which were always very lofty. He would respond to my enthusiasm at key moments by pumping is fist in a winning gesture and say in a deep tone—yoooo wainwright! Not being a typical quick-learner or athlete, his words encouraged me to move forward. I think I still carry motivation from his support.
