Hi, I'm Alex.

I'm an options trader in Chicago. In my free time, I spend a lot of time thinking about programming languages, human-centered design, and philosophy (among other things). I'm currently working on a PDF reader for technical reading, called Cerberus.

I'm inspired by people like Alan Kay and Doug Engelbart. I grew up in Korea, New Jersey, and Connecticut. In college, I majored in math and statistics.

While you're here, you might enjoy some of my posts or projects, like Lapin.

If you want, you can keep me accountable by following along my 2024 Public Goals.
