This site is coded by hand with HTML, CSS, Jekyll, and lots of love. It's hosted for free on GitHub Pages, which means you can fork the GitHub repo to make your own personal site!

Design

I fell in love with the IBM Plex font family ever since I first came across it. I now use Plex Sans across my website and resume, and Plex Serif and Plex Mono variants where appropriate. On my website, the fonts are served via Google Web Fonts.

Primary accent colors are #0083ff and #ff5470.

Photos

I've been using my trusty Canon Rebel T5i for over six years now. I started with the kit lens, but I now mostly use the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art. On some occasions I'll fall back to the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8.

I edit my photos with Adobe Lightroom Classic CC — I'll switch to the cloud version when it reaches feature parity and once storage gets cheaper.

Tech

I'm an all-Windows guy: my primary workhorse is the Dell XPS 15 2-in-1, and I recently picked up a cheap Microsoft Surface Go to work on-the-go.

I organize nearly my entire digital life in Notion. I describe it as a mix of Simplenote, Evernote, and Trello, and I'm a huge fan. Use my referral link for two free months of Notion Premium!
