Hey, I'm Colin

I write about all sorts of things, no limits. Just trying to make sense of it all. Enjoy (or don't).

About Me

If you're just interested in what I do to bring home the bacon, you can stalk me on LinkedIn.

When I was younger, my obsessions included: history, computers, and business. I'm still interested in these things, and I realized recently: why don't I write about them?

Let's be real, nobody actually knows what they're doing. But, I figured I might at least try to make sense of it all. I hope you enjoy.

In less humble words (with a tinge of sarcasm):

Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!

(Ozymandias, 1818)

PS: I used a background by Milad Fakurian for the design. Check him out.
