If you found yourself here, I imagine that you're already at least somewhat acquainted with my work. I’m a writer, a techie, and a creator. Nowadays, though, I’ve opted to be less particular about titles because I acknowledge that I will forever evolve, and sticking to titles simply doesn’t do one’s growth any justice.


In lieu of a full biography or life story, I’ll reserve this space for a (mostly) abridged interpretation of who I am, as well as what I do.


Where It Began


Early in life, after graduating high school, I didn't have the slightest idea of who I wanted to be or what I wanted to do with my life. What I did know was that I wanted to be a creator and take the road less traveled. Having been an avid writer, I realized the profound power of words and how transformative they were, so I began to create different projects that showcased my knowledge of various interests. 


Still, that wasn’t enough. After a lot of introspection, I decided to create a little forum where people would come to seek technical support, but also strengthen their technical muscles by engaging in discussions, sharing their knowledge, and learning something new.


...


Since then, I’ve applied my knowledge to different passion projects over the years.


Here’s (some of) what I’ve done so far:


- Briefly ran my own Startup.


- Offered local tech support through my freelance services.


- Joined LinuxStans, a tech publication.


- Dabbled in web development and helped folks create websites.


- Created SushiLovingNerd, a former publication of mine, dedicated to personal growth and mental health. Not only did I get to strengthen my web development skills, but I got to expand my horizons and learn a lot about SEO, analytics, and community engagement.


- Joined Consol and contributed to their blog. (Consol is a web-based productivity and chat app for personal and team projects).


Onward from 2022, I’ll be working on some long-term projects, as well as growing into who I have always wanted to be.



Ideas I Live By


- The person who is afraid of something so much so that it prevents them from following their heart will never live life on their own terms.


- If your recipes are incoherent, it won’t matter how great of a chef you really are. Translation: knowing where you want to go, why you want to go there when you want to go there, and with whom you want to go, is essentially understanding the big picture. You’ve got to know these things and leverage them. Otherwise, you’ll make a lot of sloppy hamster-wheel decisions.


- Success is a numbers game. Your success can ultimately be measured by how many times you were willing to feel uncomfortable and get your hands dirty. Seeing your comfort zone as a danger zone is generally a great way to know you’re heading in the right direction. The more something challenges you, the more it’ll change you.


- In life, if you're unhappy with Option A and Option B, the creation of Option C and Option D, although a lot more work, is always at your disposal. We are all self-made.
