For years, I have re-invented this site practically yearly.
In 2016, it was a Next.js site hosted on Digital Ocean.
In 2018, it was a site hosted in Github pages
In 2019, I switched to Gatsby
In 2020, I started something more bespoke before consulting took over my life
In 2021, I just want it to look pretty and work
So I'm back, full circle, to Next.js!
The goals of this site are thus:
- A nice single source for all of my contact info
- A digital resume, with some work
- An easy answer to 'what do you do?'
