Favorite under-the-hood things that I've added to my site lately:
1. ♿️ An accessibility menu! You can toggle light/dark mode, increase contrast, and reduce transparency! Still a work in progress.
2. 🌠 Native Markdown images that convert to something fancier with @eleventy magic.
3. 💡 An improved lightbox script. Still not a JS expert but slowly getting better.
4. 🌈 More gradients everywhere!
I’ve been using my iPad a lot more lately. For a while, I was mostly using it as an e-reader and notebook, but lately I’ve been playing games from the Kingdom Rush series and other Apple Arcade apps. I also recently discovered that there are a number of apps for creating your own fonts! Years ago, I read an article about a high school student who sent in his college application essay printed in his own handwriting, and making my own font has been on my bucket list ever since.
I've changed servers ✨

Never actually did an #introduction post so here we go -
I'm a front-end developer currently working on Apple's marketing pages. I like to experiment with CSS and code animations! In my free time, I make jewelry, build keyboards, cuddle with my cat, and keep a couple hundred plants alive and thriving 🪴
Transferred all my domains away from Google Domains and removed Twitter from all my profiles. It’s been a weird day.
This message made me so happy It’s nice to know that people still remember my Tumblr themes!
Sneak preview of the latest CSS-only thing I've been cooking up on Codepen 👀
My claim to fame is that once upon a time I made a Tumblr theme that looked just like Facebook and Soulja Boy used it as his theme for a couple of months
We've come so far but I still can't select all unread emails on my phone 😔
I don’t know if it’s just me, but finding an aesthetically pleasing G is the bane of my existence. I’ve never liked the way G looks in any font — especially cursive G’s, those are the worst. Lowercase g’s don’t make much sense either, especially the looptail variety. I used to spend hours as a child rewriting my name over and over because I couldn’t get it to look like how I wanted it to look (still haven’t quite gotten it right).
I’m enjoying the relative quiet on my Mastodon feed. I think I burned out on all the other social media because there was just a constant flow of content all the time. It’s kind of nice to be able to reach the end of new posts every now and then.
