I’m Ian and this is my website. It’s purpose is to be a dashboard to post things I’m working on or links that are interesting. I am trained in mechanical engineering (B.S.) at University of Maryland but have little interest in pursuing a long-term career in engineering. I am currently working as an engineer at a small company called Energetics Technology Center, writing code for a natural language processing project. My main goals in life are not career goals – I have few of those. I’d like to own land to grow mushrooms semi-commercially and foster animals. I’d like to, at least once before I die, raise my arms slowly and a fleet of drones rises from a cliff’s edge behind me. I’d like to drive rally semi-professionally. More than anything I’d like to design and build a house.
