making things and doing things



This is my now page.

In 2019 I left too-long in Brooklyn for a nomadic amble through only Iceland and Seattle before landing in Oakland, CA for a sunny pandemic. Now I'm in London.

I've been working on an interactive and encyclopedic travelogue of a series of fictional societies; it's also kind of a memory palace for mythologizing things I learn. It's still in progress and will be forever, but on Jan 15 2022 it'll all come together. You can take a look in the meantime if you like.

I've been learning Japanese since 2017; it's ridiculously fun and makes for fruitful procrastination.

I meditate for 30 minutes a day and alternate between increasingly elaborate yoga routines and HIIT.

I prioritize sleep over everything else and have averaged eight hours a night (including precious all-nighters) for two years now, and after the first six months of catching up found that I don't hate mornings anymore and occasionally even remember dreams.

My pandemic food passion was variations on the peanut butter + pickled cucumber + sriracha sandwich.

I'm working on decentralized identity at Serto and moonlighting at the product studio side of Serotonin. Trying to be useful and mindful in an industry for which I have both enormous skepticism and cautious optimism.

I've been enjoying nudibranchs, digital gardens, and postrat Twitter.

Some tools I've gotten into recently: Roam for notes and second brain stuff, Focusmate for enforcing my plans in a slightly social way, and a notebook where I visualize streaks doing the stuff I want to do.

The main personality update I am cultivating right now is to reflexively delight in surmounting akrasia.
