This has been overdue but my name is Zach :) I live in NYC. I like to make creative coding tools and generative art. Mostly JS but have lightly ventured into things like Rust and took a class this semester that required Python. I am about to finish my MFA from Parsons School of Design and am now like scared about finding a job 👀 But mostly just focusing on not isolating myself despite the pandemic. So, hello!

had a stress dream about some unexpected building maintenance on the facade of my apt ruining all of my personal stuff 🙃
