Eli is a frontend developer with a passion for web performance, animation, and WebGL. He makes tools to create beautiful interactive maps at Mapbox, a startup in his hometown of Washington, DC. He also organizes the DC CodePen meetup and dabbles in design, 3D art, and game development. When not in front of a computer, he restores his perpetually broken stable of 1970s motorcycles and attempts to keep his historic row house from collapsing in on itself like a dying star.
