By day, I am a software developer with a strong preference for back-end technologies. My tenacious nature lends itself well to bug-fixing, performance, and security issues, as well as writing clean code with clear responsibilities.
I write for fun. I don't like having my output stored on someone else's platform and hosted at their whims; frustrations with the entropy of sites like Facebook drove me to finally setup a this site as a hobby project/creative release valve.
What I do with my time:
- Read, mostly sci-fi and political science
- Watching movies, playing games… Anything involving tropes, oddly enough—I like thinking about the relationships between superficially dissimilar media, and recognizing patterns. Watching movies with me can be a uniquely exhausting experience
Things that I don't do as often as I'd like:
- Riding my bike
- Cooking elaborate dishes, or trying to perfect simple recipes (e.g. french bread)
- Learn languages
- DIY projects around the house
I live on the Upper East Side of New York with my wife, and our cat
