My name is Andrew Paon.
I am a software engineer with a passion for programming. I'm particularly interested in full-stack web development, developer tooling, and procedurally-generated art.
In the past I have been a full-time employee of Google and Retool.
These days, I pay the bills by developing custom software for small- and medium-sized businesses.
This page is an attempt to document my sprawling and chaotic web-presence.
