About the Writer

I’m, foremost, a junior (3rd year) at my public high school in South Loop, Chicago where I’m founding, leading, and teaching my school’s first Hack Club. Outside of school, I enjoy building things. Right now, I’m building the foundation for a big idea I think you’ll want to hear about in the future. In addition to some commission web dev work, I’m also constantly writing for and iterating upon this website and sporadically working on smaller side projects.

Why and what I write

I write here mostly for myself, to document growth and changes in my own life, projects, and opinions. I also write about other stuff I care about; tech, software design and development, apps & workflows, and current events.

Anyone else reading, enjoying, learning from, or otherwise appreciating the thoughts published here would be a delightful side effect of using the internet as my journal.

About the Website

I call this website my life’s work because it (the design + markup & styling) is probably the single creative project I’ve spend the most care, time, and thought on. Since it’s my permanent spot on the internet, I’ve been consistently iterating on it since it’s inception at the end of 2021 to make it a place I’m proud to call my own. Changes will slow dramatically when I’m at a point where I’m completely satisfied with the design and functionality, but I plan to never stop writing here.
