Software Engineer, Photographer


I think usually personal websites are supposed to be focused. If you're a photographer, your website is about your photography. If you're a programmer, your website is about programming.


But I've always believed that people shouldn't be just one thing. A person shouldn't be just a programmer, just a musician, just an athlete. By pursuing more than one venture, we open up our minds and make unusual connections, and those connections can make us better in everything we do. Of course there's lots of evidence and discussion around this, but I've also found it to be very true personally. In other words, I'm interested in a lot of random stuff.


So in that vein, I don't intend for this site to be about one thing, because I just want a place to put whatever I feel like. Right now the only content is my photography, but I hope that will change over time - especially with blog posts. 


In the mean time, enjoy the photos. And if you want to stay up to date with them, please follow me on Instagram and/or 500px.
