Go to the Lab Notes
Hey there, I’m Alexander.
I’m interested in how software can better serve people’s daily lives.
My experiments often involve designing and developing many ideas — some of which I build into publicly available products, which further informs my research. Below is a compendium of my research areas, projects, and products.
My work is graciously supported by the community — if you want to join us, see memberships.
Some other things: Songs I'm Made Of is a show I host in which songwriters tell their story in episodes woven together with both their own songs and the ones that inspire their work. In the first season, we met nine fantastic songwriters. Season two will begin soon. Simple Habits is a simple app for tracking habits from your phone. And you can check out everything else at Pretty Much Everything.
