Side Projects

Ongoing

My newly redesigned personal website.

  • They say people don’t read case studies so I turned mine into small bite-sized cards to make it more fun and engaging.
  • They say “3 case studies max” but I wanted to showcase my entire range of skills and experience in an infinitely scalable, fun to watch format.
  • Written in TypeScript using NextJS, Radix UI and Framer Motion.

Worlds is my several years long research into design and physics. It manifested as a new type of design tool stemming from a different way of thinking about systems.

It’s best described as:
• A browser for your mind.
• An engine for abstract thought.
• Your personal design assistant.
• A playground for computing.
• A magic dreambox full of ideas.

Currently in development.

Created as a personal space for my photography. I left Instagram in 2020 to find my voice in photography and explore what kind of photos I want to make as opposed to what is rewarded with the most likes. The website is kept simple and is gradually improved. Built with React and Gatsby.
