About me

Hi, I’m Eric Johnson. I’m a developer and a writer.

I enjoy photography — especially taking urban nature photos.

And coffee. Let’s grab one next time you’re in Washington, DC.

Work

At GitHub I lead our Public Sector Solutions Engineering team – helping government agencies modernize and make better, more secure software.

Before that, I ran EL Studio Communications, a web development shop helping nonprofits and associations connect.

That work started at The Case Foundation, where I oversaw code and web strategy for the Foundation’s first public grant competition.
