Hi! I'm Brennan.

I work at Synthesis, an education startup that's quite hard to describe. I spend most of my time there architecting and coding the first versions of technically-complex products (so far: student enrollment flow, teacher availability tracker, critical database migration, video recording pipeline, custom Zoom replacement).

I also read a lot, constantly learning as much as I can. I've done this ever since surviving high school; almost everything is interesting to me, because I can usually attach it to some existing knowledge. This takes up 1–6 hours of each day for me; books vary tremendously in length, but I typically finish ~100/year.

To finally round out my "3 R's", I make a point of writing 1000 words every day. The bulk is private—it's the way I dump my inmost thoughts—but I make a point of publishing the thoughts I'm most proud of, so that they can be attacked by the Internet from various angles, and I can improve my beliefs through that criticism.
