This website is first and foremost a place for me to write about all the various things I work on and think about. I started blogging about technical projects back in 2009 at modsbywerd.blogspot.com. I had worked on some portable Sega Dreamcast projects (Portable, Tablet), and needed a place to post pictures and details about the builds. Though I haven’t blogged on that website for a long time, it is still out there for the world to see.
In college, I decided to get back into blogging about technical things I was working on and ended up starting a blog using

I really liked Jekyll but I’m not much of a Ruby person, and I found that liquid, Jekyll’s templating language, was fairly limited, and was difficult to find good information on. So I went in search of something else and landed on Gatsby.
