Welcome to my little slice of the Internet.


The man, the myth, the legend.

Thanks for checking out my website! I use this bad boy to keep track of my thoughts and projects. It’s a nice place to come back and self-reflect. That being said, I write my articles largely for myself. If I gloss over any details that you’d like clarification on, please feel free to contact me on LinkedIn or GitHub.
