Welcome! On this site you can find articles related to programming, investing, business, analytics, and mathematics, as well as a variety of other topics that interest me.

My name is Will, and I work as an analyst. I use this website as a notebook of interesting (to me) subjects that I’m learning and experimenting with. The technical material on this site is sourced and adapted from academic books, papers, and online references.

A note about the writing style of this site. When I use the pronoun you in my articles, I’m oftentimes addressing myself. It’s not my intention to give advice to you (the reader); you’re free to do whatever you want. When I use the pronoun we, I do it in the mathematical sense.

Technical Details

The site is built with Hugo via Blogdown. It’s hosted on Cloudflare and deployed via Netlify. The domain is on GoDaddy (ugh), but I have plans to move it to another registrar. The source code is in a private repo.

There is no tracking on this website; the only analytics I see are Cloudflare’s reports of unique visitors, requests, and bandwidth. I don’t use (nor enjoy) social media. To get in touch, send me an email.

To stay updated on new articles, subscribe via RSS. Code and public projects can be found on Bitbucket.
