Welcome 2 my little world! Think of this site not only as a kind of a series of portals to a few different platforms where some of my other stuff is hosted, but also as its own island, where everything that can be put here, is. Currently, that just means my written blog- which I've had since around 2020 and update sporadically.
Can you write a semi-long first-person informal bio without it sounding like you're interviewing yourself? This seems to be the natural shape that the web 1.0 site takes. I'll try not to think about it too much, I guess. I'm a third-year computer science student hoping to do work related to augmented reality- or perhaps research related to human computer interaction more generally in the future. I don't have all the little pieces in place quite yet- but at 21, few do.
I have interests outside of computers too. I love music and performing, and was a theatre kid all my adolescent life. I just recently picked up the keyboard and really enjoy learning about synthesizers. COVID kind of made my on-stage life come to a halt, but I've been putting up little things I've made on Soundcloud. I've yet to perform live- or with an actual band, but that is the long term goal. As of right now, I've only been playing for a few months.
I write poems sometimes too! There are a few already on my rolling blog. They're a little more stream-of-consciousness than the stuff I do now, but the overall style remains the same. I take a lot of inspiration from beat poets like Allen Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti- as well as music artists like Aero Gros M.
