At home I'm a daddy to two little kids. This takes up most of the rest of my time. It turns out that having two kids is hard and one is merely inconvenient.

Our wonderful friends.

Curiosity drives me to learn about how things work. It's surprising how often knowledge outside my field of work or study becomes relevant.
Beauty makes things worth creating. I hope to make something, someday, that's so beautiful, functional, and impactful that people will be better for having seen/experienced it.

And James Baldwin. How did I not know who he was for so long?
