2023 Retrospective


Happy New Year! I hope 2024 will be a better year.

Things I wrote

In 2022, I focused on writing. I have been less productive this year and felt that life events didn’t help. It didn’t feel easy to keep habits when moving homes.

Things I’ve been working on

This Website

I’ve updated and refreshed this very website. The most fun part was creating the illustration on the home page. Have you tried clicking on some objects?


I’ve been working on the illustrations for my upcoming deck of cards on computer science. I finished the deck! Illustration and text! 2024 will be all about refining, reviewing and printing the deck. I’m planning on doing a Kickstarter later this year.


Lucida is a small web app or Progressive Web App (PWA) that mimics a camera lucida. It lets you set up an image on the screen, which you can trace with a pencil while looking through it. See some of my creations on this page.

Things I learned


Astro is an excellent framework for building static sites. This very website is made with Astro!


I haven’t read much this year, mostly self-help and career books.
