Craft By Zen


Things that I am thinking about now. Sporatic updates about life, things I'm thinking about and exploring.


Every weekend, I’ve been slowly moving to San Jose, so I haven’t been able to spend enough time with my hobbies and side projects. This website has seen a down tick in content, and I’m looking forward to writing more in the near future. Certainly post-move.

To spend the in-between time not thinking about code, I’ve been playing Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. We recently finished Cult of the Lamb, and it felt pretty special.

I went to the Figma conference last week at San Francisco Moscone Center, and it was a packed event. I’m excited to dive deep into more UX work.


Finishing up the book, “Laws of UX”. It’s a great primer on the topic and I’m looking forward to sharing it with my team. Also reading “Saving Time: Discovering a Life Beyond the Clock” by Jenny O’Dell.

Slowly moving to San Jose, California. The apartment has been finalized, and we have two months to move in. Also, planning my wedding for May 2024.

Deployed and continually making improvements to this website. I’m using Astro.js and re-learning Svelte along the way.

I’m nearly done with playing through Hogwarts Legacy.
