this site

This site started as a blog for the tiny house I was building. Over time, I realized that I'm tempermentally not much of a blogger --updates became very infrequent-- so I transitioned the site to its current format (static and served from Github pages, instead of paying for hosting I was barely using). It's mainly intended as a portfolio of the things that I've built and written over the years. I might add more stuff eventually.


My name's Robert Austin, I have a computer engineering degree from Michigan State University. I'm a writer, maker and software developer. I'm good at solving problems and prefer working on a team to working alone. I also like cooking and gardening. I do not like mowing lawns.

If for some reason you want to contact me, I'm robert dot w dot austin at gmail dot com, and I have a minor footprint on social media at these places:
