Jameson L. Hampton is a non-binary adventurer located in the heart of the West side of Buffalo, NY.


Jamey Hampton is an artist who turned into a programmer after one too many animation classes that were computer science classes in disguise. They are a ruby and android developer and they love writing code because they love solving puzzles.

They are currently working as a senior software engineer at True Link Financial, helping folks in financially at-risk demographics manage their finances.

Previously, they worked in the agriculture sector at Artemis (formerly Agrilyst), a startup that’s doing data analysis and crop management for indoor farms. They’ve also been a contractor, working on projects such as Medicapt, a Human Rights Tulip award nominated mobile app to help physicians in third world countries to collect medical evidence of sexual violence crimes in order to increase prosecution. They also speak at conferences, particularly about transgender advocacy and engineering ethics.
