šŸ‘ØšŸ»ā€šŸ’» About

Iā€™m Steven Levithan (slev), and this is where I blog about my life.

For 17 years I worked in tech ā€” in Silicon Valley, Washington DC, Tokyo, and Baghdad. These days I’m a nomad and exploring new interests like teaching, writing, art, and language. I’m still a geek at heart, though.

Some fun facts:

  • I’m learning Japanese and Serbian.
  • I previously held Top Secret clearance for the US government.
  • I’ve coauthored several programming books, including Regular Expressions Cookbook.
  • I was born into a notorious/secretive cult and left at age 16, then later worked with friends to document their history online.
