Kia ora, I'm Jordan.

I'm a developer interested in music, productivity and self-improvement. I enjoy working across all aspects of product development and believe that a deeper understanding of the stack allows me to architect higher quality/more robust solutions. I love that one can never know too much about technology. There is always an opportunity to continue expanding and applying my knowledge base. This concept of continual improvement is one I have found to be common among all my interests.

This is my zone to create and experiment.

"Nothing scares the egoic mind more than the unknown, the idea of something new, something different. The mind always adheres to the known. The unknown is dangerous because it has no control over it. That's why the mind dislikes and ignores the present moment. Present-moment awareness creates a gap in the stream of mind but also in the past-future continuum. Nothing truly new and creative can come into this world except through that gap, that clear space of infinite possibility."
