It's My Web Page

I'm Joe Bowers. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I'm a programmer at Google. I really like it here!

I have a public LinkedIn profile.

Before I worked at Google, I worked at TripleByte, CoreOS (now part of Red Hat), and Mixpanel. I've been really lucky to be work with some amazing people doing inspiring things.

I made some little video games that play themselves.

The folks who make Mi.Mu Gloves used to have a DIY design posted on line, so I made one.

These little mazes were generated with tools I built after reading Jamis Buck's book, Mazes for Programmers. You can take a look at the tooling (and maybe make your own mazes) on Github.

I like to play music, and I play the accordion and the guitar. Here's some music I made in Garage Band when I lived in North Carolina.
