My name is Pixel. I am a sophomore at Swarthmore College studying engineering and environmental studies. I am based in North Jersey a.k.a. the Fake New York City area.
I have little to no business trying to spend time coding a website as frontend development is just one tool in my Toolbox, like how I have also picked up graphic design, marketing, and managing spreadsheets because I could.
I've always enjoyed organizing things. Maybe too much. My nickname in high school was Mr. Resource Man because I have a knack to make the connections that people ask you for. My friends like to utilize this skill to get me to find songs for them from TikTok. I also tend to reminisce on 2000's aesthetics: though I wouldn't call it nostalgia.
I seek to nurture communities and understand how people are impacted by their natural and built environments in cities. This tends to include issues of building infrastrucutre, housing, transportation, and education. I fancy exploring the field of digital humanities and thinking about how we can reimagine the documentation of storytelling experiences. I dream about what the world would look like after societal collapse and how we could practice picking up the pieces. I believe that another world is possible — another world is already here.Feel free to shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave me an obscure message on Your World of Text.

This website was made in HTML with CSS styling built in rather than on a separate CSS file. If you press [F12] you can see exactly how I made this site page by page. My first time learning how to code in HTML was when I was in the sixth grade. I generally take notes in Obsidian.md using GitHub Flavored Markdown and LaTeX and only use HTML when it is relevant for editing on WordPress, Tumblr, and Pokemon forums. I don't know everything, I only know what I know, and I try to get decent at it.
I take inspiration from the work of Olia Lianlina and Dragan Espenschied's archive of GeoCities as well as Kyle Drake's revival of the framework on NeoCities.
