About this site

This is a site maintained as a portal to my online presence, and also a rarely-updated set of writings about things related to chemistry, beer brewing, clothing, and music.

I frequently work on projects that have nothing to do with my field of study. Some of these projects can be lumped under music & arts, fashion, and design. Mostly I just consider them things that I do to entertain myself. You can find these here as well, usually under projects.

The picture of me shown here was taken by my good friend @internetpat.

The typefaces used on this website are MEGAZERO by Alex Trochut, ITC Avant Garde Pro Bold, and Replica (in its Light and Regular weights). Code for this website was mostly adapted from someone much smarter than me. This code is licensed under CC BY 3.0.

About me

I’m a Canadian chemist living in Edmonton, Alberta. I currently work for Gilead Alberta ULC, a subsidiary of Gilead Sciences, a California-based pharmaceutical company.

I’m originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. I speak English natively, French at an intermediate level, and Czech at an ever-decaying level (I was, at one time, fluent).

You can find me elsewhere on the internet using the links at the bottom of the page.
