About Bram

Bram Adams (@bramses) is a creative technologist and commonplacer based out of NYC.

Bram publishes a weekly newsletter (Sundays), is a community developer ambassador for OpenAI, and does freelance contracts (for hire!) related to AI/web dev/AR+VR.

As of Fall 2023, Bram is actively working on Commonplace Bot, a novel and modern look into how LLMs and creative coding can help us capture, engage, and creatively remix the best pieces of information we come across. You can test it out live in the Bram Adams' Discord server.

Bram is the creator of Stenography, an API and VSC Extension that automatically documents code on save, which went #1 on Product Hunt. He also is the author of Bramses' Highly Opinionated Vault, an extremely detailed philosophy + vault template used by thousands of Obsidian users (new and old!), and ChatGPT MD, a (nearly) seamless integration of Chat GPT into Obsidian which has been downloaded by over twenty thousand Obsidian users. He also taught the GPT-3 in Production Course for O'Reilly Media, teaching students how to leverage LLMs in the real world of production.

Previously Developer Advocate @ Algolia, Software Engineer @ HBO, Computer Science B.S. @ University of Rochester
