  1. Previously I worked for several years as a senior Ruby on Rails developer. I switched to Elixir full-time in 2016. ↩︎

  2. React with Redux, Apollo or re-frame for state management. ↩︎

  3. This site is built with Gulp and Webpack. 🙂 ↩︎

  4. I'm currently convinced "The Mind Illuminated" is the best book on meditation I've ever read. An incredible gem. ↩︎

  5. Mostly Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Judo and Muay Thai. I also find Baguazhang intriguing, though more for its somatic novelty and contemplative roots than fighting application. ↩︎

  6. Horror in film most obviously, but also graphic novels, music and even political theory. ↩︎
