Now

Here's what I'm up to these days.

Sitka

Closing in on year three at Sitka. More lights to keep on, the road goes ever on, and the more of us are in for the ride.

We're building tools to get the best specialists in front of primary care providers and their patients. We're built a fully remote company and we're hiring!

Learning about compilers and interpreters

A few years ago I built some Babel plugins to look into page load time optimizations using source code transformations. In the absence of a formal CS background, this was my first foray into abstract syntax trees and compilers. I had a practical reason to learn the stuff, and it was fun.

I'm now taking a Compilers course at UNED and going through Writing A Compiler In Go, by Thorsten Ball.

Synthesizing

All that time staying inside in 2020 made for ample time to learn about sound design and synthesizers. Armed with a Korg Monologue and an Arturia Microfreak, I took up on designing sounds from scratch. There's no such thing as too many LFOs so long you're having fun and nodding along.

I'm now exploring translating and arranging sound sketches into compositions.
