About Me

Hi, I’m Patrick Blesi. I’m a developer/engineering manager who works at Braintree, a payments processing company and subsidiary of PayPal. I’m a former teacher, current husband, and puppy parent. I live in Chicago, learned things at Wisconsin, and grew up in Minnesota.

I’m passionate about anything that has to do with honing a craft, whether it’s software development, cooking, or personal and professional improvement. I’m relentless in my pursuit of perfection (though oddly not a perfectionist). Some day I aspire to be an avid wood worker and learn to play the piano.
