My name is Kelly Sutton. I’m a software engineer living in San Francisco. I’m on the engineering team at Gusto.

I’ve started and sold Designer News, HackCollege, and LayerVault. I was also known at one time for the Cult of Less. Now I have a girlfriend and a waffle iron, so we can all agree that project is likely over.

If you would like to get in touch, please drop me an email.


Over the years, I’ve been fortunate to have some of the things I do recognized. Here is a partial list:
