Hi! I’m Logan. I’m in the process of re-skilling into computer science and software development at the University of Pennsylvania. If you’re interested, you can read more about how I spend my time in the sections below.

I’m currently thinking about bias in artificial intelligence systems, decreasing human work burdens, climate change, and more. I am seeking full-time work in software development to begin in summer 2021.

Vermont Trip 2020

My friend John camps yearly at the Little River State Park near Waterbury, Vermont. We booked two sites back in September of 2019, intending to camp there together with our partners. He could not join us due to COVID, but my spouse and I decided to go anyway. Travelling during COVID is stressful. Travelling to Vermont was easier - when we arrived, it was the only “green” state in the US with regards to COVID prevalence. Read more
