Hi there! My name's Kingsley. I'm a Brit, who's been living in the US since 2016. I write code for things on the internet. More specifically, I'm an Open Source Enthusiast & I work as a DevOps Engineer for an education company.

A full-stack developer, generalist, and environmentalist, I enjoy combining my obsessive attention to detail, with my love for making things, and the environment, with a mission-driven work ethic of changing the world, in one small positive way at a time. Checkout some of my work , or say hello!


  • Building an app to digitise 213 pages of medical bills (WIP)

    After posting about the cost of Sterling's 2 week ICU stay, I finally got a full itemised bill of Sterling's entire 7 months in the ICU. The only issue, is that it's all paper-based. Following me along my journey as I digitise 213 pages of medical bills!


  • The cost of two weeks in an pediatric/infant ICU

    Curious how much common medications such as acetaminophen/paracetamol cost in an ICU? What about the actual daily room cost in an ICU? Or, specific treatments/labs? What about diaper cream? I'm sharing the itemised bill of one of my daughter's 5 ICU addmissions to highlight the (pre-insurance) cost of being in a pediatric/infant Intensive Care Unit.

  • "The Sterling Sessions"

    Tune into 4.20 Mhz, the soothing sounds of old school roots reggae, classic songs remixed/parodied specifically for my daughter Sterling... reggae helps heal (even open heart surgery)!

  • The staggering cost of surviving heart disease in the USA

    I’m originally from a country where socialised medicine is the norm (the UK), so the idea of paying for healthcare directly out of my own pocket still feels very weird to me. Follow me on my journey as a parent to a child born with a rare congenital disorder and heart defect in the USA, and learn the staggering true cost of treating both in the USA along the way.


  • I built a table 💪

    I’ve never really done much woodwork, but my wife decided she wanted me to repurpose some sixty-plus-year-old barn wood. I’m always up for a challenge, so I figured what better way to do justice to it than to go down the rabbit hole of fine-furniture creation, and about a hundred hours later, I finished building our dining room table!


  • Tracking air quality & industry in Gary, Indiana

    My neighbours and I in Miller Beach pitched in and bought a PurpleAir II to track air quality in our community. I've since added weather, plane, boat, train, and traffic tracking, and open-sourced it so other people can track pollution in their communities.
