Hello world!

A very wise person told me to just start a blog. So here I am.

To keep this as low maintenance as possible, this blog runs on WordPress (obviously), using the new Twenty Twenty-Four theme. Out of the box, this theme is fast, beautiful, and has a low barrier to entry. As a web developer, it’s easy to make things more difficult by thinking you need to customize everything — a build process here, fun animation there, but I found myself paralyzed with choice and it prevented me from actually blogging.

Topics you’ll likely see on this blog: WordPress, web development, cooking & food, travel, adventures with my dog, engineering leadership, UConn basketball, books I’ve read. It’s not a strictly technical blog, it’s a throwback to blogging for fun about whatever you want.
