About

I write software and write about software. I love getting email — consider this a standing invitation. Lately, I've been interested in chess engines, programming language interpreters, and digital gardens. This website is built with Next.js and hosted on Vercel. It's open source.

Presenting: When Does Development Spark Joy? Sentimental analysis of commit messages.

I like teaching people things that I know. I like video games, running, and reading.

I am easily impressed by people and the cool stuff that they build. I read a lot of personal and technical blogs. If we've ever interacted, I've visited your website and probably think it's cool!

Things I Like (continued)

Technical books I recommend include Grokking Algorithms, Crafting Interpreters, Classic Computing Problems in Python, and The Computational Beauty of Nature.

Non-tech authors I recommend include Patricia Lockwood and Ben Lerner. In my undergrad, I mostly studied post-WWII fiction.

I like being outside and prefer cold days. I enjoy the rain.
