alex and idara My daughter and me.

My name is Alex, and this is my blog. I’ve been maintaining it with some regularity for the past seven years, and I plan on continuing to do so for the rest of my life.

It’s meant to serve two purposes: to show what I did with my life and to help me understand why I did it. In that sense, it’s like a journal: hastily written, poorly edited, and mostly for me. That said, I care about what I write, and I hope you do, too.

I don’t always share my posts on social media, but I do maintain a little email list that I’d love for you to be a part of. You can also subscribe to my posts via RSS, which plays nicely with aggregators like Feedly.

If you’re curious about who I am or where I come from, read some posts. To get in touch, please email me at
