Now

What am I up to right now?

This is a now page, and if you have your own site, you should make one, too.

Life

I live in Austin, TX with my fiancée and our 4 cats (Cisco, Sammy, Milo, & Remy)! My fiancée and I have been together for 6 years and we are finally getting married this December!

In other news, my sister gave birth to a healthy baby boy, and I am now an uncle! I can’t wait for us to be the cool aunt and uncle when he grows up!

Work

I recently accepted an offer with The Texas Tribune as a Full-Stack Engineer! I’m very excited to join the team and contribute to the development of their CMS and related tools to keep Texans informed!

Learning

I’m currently working through all the Code With Mosh courses I find interesting. I find Mosh’s courses to be extremely thorough and well produced. Some of these courses aren’t anything new to me, but I figured it never hurts to refresh your memory and maybe fill in some gaps.

Creating

Right now I am tinkering with how this looks and how I am going to use it. For looks, I’m adapting Simple.css into a Hugo theme which you can view the source of on GitHub. As for how I’m going to use this site, that is still developing, but I want to write more so I added /posts to help me with that.

Listening

I love listening to podcasts! I have listed to 69 days worth of podcasts since 2016 and I have saved 6.5 days of my time by using the skip, variable speed, and trim silence features according to the app I use. These are the podcasts I’m currently listening to:
