Greg Baugues



My name’s Greg. I live in Chicago and serve as a developer evangelist at Twilio. I’m married to a beautiful woman, Rachel, without whom I wouldn’t have accomplished much of what you see on this site. Last November, I became a dad!

I have bipolar and ADHD and speak a lot about mental health in the tech community. I’m writing a book called Developers and Depression, and in 2013 I had the honor of speaking on the topic at the Business of Software conference. That 30 minutes on stage was one of the best things I’ve done with my life:
