Yes, I make websites. Usually personal sites, designed for displaying writing. I handle everything from design to development, to assistance with deployment. I call this service WEBCRAFT.

You can hire me if you like sites that don’t look like most modern websites. If you like simple (but non-boring) sites that are made to last. That look great without a ton of investment into graphic assets and fancy tools. Sites for humans, if you will.

I also do other stuff, which is what the rest of this site is for. But WEBCRAFT is what pays my bills, hence the sales pitch.

Welcome to the 2024 redesign

It has both dark mode and font options (if you can find the toggles), a way simpler design system, and makes for a cleaner reading experience. For more details, check out the Colophon.

The content on this site is not supposed to be fancy. I have no visual portfolio, or desire to showcase my animation skills (I have none). Most things are just simple text, and I like it that way.

To figure out: Add a sitemap, and/or search functionality.

It is winter

It is far from being a real one, the days are still warm and the nights can barely be described as “chilly”. My sleep is messed up but my body feels okay, so that’s alright.

I am in a bit of a slump. I am unhappy with the things I design (too basic! too similar!), and am disappointed with how little I’m working.

But on weekends, I am working on a programming project with Nihal, and it involves incredibly fun collaboration calls from 2AM until one of us is too sleepy to think straight. This is nice.
