So I've just finished making this site. Not bad for a few hours work!
The purpose of this site is to be a public-facing site for information about myself and the content I've created, as well as any musings I may feel like sharing with the world.
While I may have been able to use an existing blog site more easily to share my thoughts, none of the existing sites allowed me to include detailed information about my background, portfolio, and publications. In the end, I knew it would be better to start from scratch.
As with a piece of art, an information engineer's work is never finished, you just run out of time. Accordingly, I'll keep adding both content and structure to the site whenever I have the time.
