I poke computers for a living. This usually involves working with the very low-level details of compilers, linkers, operating systems, runtimes, allocators, etc. When I’m not writing something in Rust that really shouldn’t be, I’m usually writing C++ I really shouldn’t be. I also have a background in security and cryptography (but am not a cryptographer).
Outside of fighting with computers I do a lot of digital art, such as the avatar on the sidebar. If you’re looking for my art blog, click here. I don’t currently take commissions. I also enjoy baking, cooking, biking, and photographing my cat, Solomon.
In a past life I was a mathematician. I’m told this makes all of my writing read like math papers.
