About me

I was born and raised in Chappaqua, New York, where I spent my childhood messing around on the computer, sometimes stopping to read, take photos, and play video games.

I studied math and English literature Tufts University in Medford, MA. After graduating, I soon settled in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, where I remain today.

I am a data analyst at Rent the Runway. In the past, I have worked as a fact-checker, breaking news reporter, research fellow at a museum of miniatures, EMT, and pizza delivery guy.

My last name rhymes with the hand sanitizer brand, not the round shape. Less Steve Urkel and more Stefan Urquelle.

My contact information is on the home page of this site.

About this site

This website is hand-written in boring old HTML.

The style sheet is made with Sass and Bulma. Image lightboxes are powered by Chocolat, which is itself powered by jQuery.

Compilation, concatenation, minification, and general websitification are handled by a complex clever Gulp workflow.
