👋 I write
programs, prose, and poetry.

A systems thinker with a mystical bend, I'm exploring a life full of words and wandering.A random list of things I love: ☕ïļ hot chai, 💎 Ruby programming, ⛰ïļ mountain air, 🍛 nasi lemak, 📔 poems in a journal, ✈ïļ writing on plane rides.This website is an evolving home to a couple links, and a now page, which I update regularly with what's going on.

A few things I believe

  • Everything is Interconnected.

  • Never bet against text.

  • Software is modern magic. An invocation within a terminal can change the quality of someone's day.

  • Reading forms a deeper awareness of the people, products, and world around us. Indeed, it forms a deeper awareness of ourselves.


I write regularly on my blog, The Spoonful.Selected essays:â€Ē The Adventure to Asia
â€Ē The Lie of Translation
â€Ē Software Spellcraft
â€Ē The Practice of Holding Space
â€Ē The Internet City
â€Ē 2023, a Year in Review
I also muse a bit on Twitter.

I'm on sabbatical with my wife, exploring the East. When I'm not writing prose, poetry, or code, I'm strolling through cities, hiking through forests, and wandering through my imagination.
