A newsletter about things I wish I knew while I was at MIT and earlier in my career. Here are my thoughts about productivity, software engineering, life lessons, tools, writing, and even acting.


I grew up in El Paso, I went to MIT to study Computer Science, and now I live in Austin, TX. You'll find I hold a special fondness for technology, acting, writing, musicals, and learning.
