The At Sea Journal
More information than you wanted on a variety of obscure topics
Thanks for visiting! My name is Erik. I'm a writer, programmer, and artist. This site is a place for me to share some of my work. I write novels, and long long studies on how other novelists write theirs. I'm interested in cinematography, figure drawing, machine learning, data visualization, basketball, pedagogy, semiotics, network science, and just about anything else — provided the presentation is wonkish enough.
If you'd like to get in touch, I'm on Twitter. And my book is on Amazon.
