Jacob Evan Shreve

Aspiring Human & Computer Wizard

Hey there! My name's Jacob. I live in Ypsilanti, MI, and I'm a technology consultant and computer science student. I've been programming for about years and using Ruby on Rails for about . I'm currently unavailable for new work, but check back in mid-2020 — I should be graduated by then.

If you'd like to get in touch, you can email me (jacob [at] shreve.io) or tweet me (@_shreve).

Things I'm working on

  • Wellopp

    I joined the Wellopp team in January 2016. I am currently the product lead of our SMS-based patient interaction tool, as well as a supporting developer on several of our other products and working on moving our infrasturcture to Kubernetes.

  • B.S.E. in Computer Science from UMich

    Beginning Fall 2016, I started my junior year at the University of Michigan's school of engineering. By the time I finish, I'll have taken courses on discrete math, algorithms, cryptography, operating systems, networks, compilers, machine learning, and more.

  • Sugu

    Sugu is my growing brand of adult lifestyle products and services. As of now, it's just me, so it's growing slow. What motivated me to start such an ambitious project was the lack of transparency, reputability, and frankly good design in all the different niche sites I found.
    Sugu stands for sex positivity, open information, and accessibility.

  • Sugu Toys

    Sugu Toys is the first service from Sugu. As the name suggests, it's an online sex toy store. Furthering the message of sex positivity, our mantra is “We’re here to sell you sex toys and accessories because sex is awesome and you’re great.”

This song goes out to anybody here that believes that maybe, just maybe, we were all born with the moral obligation to leave this world a better place than the world that we’ve found.
