"Hello world."

Two words every self-respecting software developer is obligated to begin new projects with. With that out of the way, an introduction of sorts is in order.

As you’ve probably guessed, my name is Liam, and I like to build software. As of writing, I’m a student at the University of Iowa, pursuing degrees in Computer Science and Philosophy, and a minor in theatre arts. As much as I love staring at a screen all day, I also enjoy spending time in the real world. I try to fill that time with travel (quite a bit of it), but when I’m stuck in one place I enjoy running, pick-up games of soccer, and reading a good book or two. More about me on the about page.

My hopes for this website:

  • Extend my resume - It would be nice to have some place to expound on my accomplishments, unbounded by the limits of a single sheet of paper. I don’t exclusively want to become a web developer, so I’ll probably stick to writing articles than building in examples to the site.

  • Express professional interests: I have many interests, but it’d be beneficial to talk about my career-oriented ones in a place that a) I control, b) I can easily update, and c) is not a social media platform.

  • Obsess less about professional accounts: LinkedIn and GitHub are great; however, having started so young, they’re a little messy and could do with a not-unsubstantial amount of work.

We’ll see how this little experiment goes. After all, I’ve bought the domain for a year; might as well use it.
