About Me

Have you ever looked at the way things are done and just wanted to make it better? I feel like that all the time. It's not even a matter of introducing something new. The field of computing is littered with ideas that are well researched, have working prototypes, yet ended up abandoned decades ago for no apparent reason. I expect other fields are probably similar. One of my goals in life is to reduce this gap between what's known and what's actually used. Mainly in software development, because that's what I'm most familiar with.

So this website is primarily about hosting and talking about programming projects. Expect a bunch of smaller less useful pieces before I get to the good stuff. But also expect electronics, civics, foreign languages... basically anything catching my interest about which I can say something data driven or otherwise interesting.


In 2012 I almost completed an extra honours year in computer science, before finding out that I'm really not cut out for research. My mindset is too focused on solving problems. Practical problems.
