<h2 class="about-title">Who I Am</h2>
<p class="about-text">
My name is Ethan Paul, and I am an engineer working in tech! I graduated as a part of
<a target="_blank" href="https://www.wpi.edu/">Worcester Polytechnic Institute</a>'s
Class of 2017 with a degree in
<a href="https://www.wpi.edu/academics/departments/mechanical-engineering">Mechanical Engineering</a>.
I am an avid outdoorsman, a former Boy Scout, and had a lot of fun getting my
<a target="_blank" href="https://www.solidworks.com/sw/support/797_ENU_HTML.htm">SolidWorks Certified Professional Certification</a>
(even though I don't actually use it). I'm also a
<a target="_blank" href="http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/type-1/">Type 1 Diabetic</a>
who enjoy's
<a target="_blank" href="https://openaps.org/">hacking my OmniPod insulin pump</a>,
and I can make a mean omelet (if I do say so myself).
Well that's a complicated question to open with. How do I sum that up into a nice, neat blurb for the
internet? I can start with some simple easy to categorize attributes, that seems to be the usual
approach.
<br><br>
I was part of the <a target="_blank" href="https://www.wpi.edu/">WPI</a> Class of 2017 and graduated
with a degree in mechanical engineering. My job is completely unrelated to my degree: I work as a
Site Reliability Engineer at <a target="_blank" href="https://www.wpi.edu/">Starry, Inc</a>. I like
hiking, mechanical design, and literary theory. I'm a
<a target="_blank" href="http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/type-1/">Type-1 Diabetic</a>, I have a
<a target="_blank" href="https://www.solidworks.com/sw/support/797_ENU_HTML.htm">SolidWorks Professional Certification</a>,
and have accidentally flipped over very-nearly every time I've ridden in a canoe (bonus fact: I don't
like canoes very much).

<h2 class="about-title">My Interests</h2>
<h2 class="about-title">What I Like</h2>
<p class="about-text">
My interests are pretty varied and constantly changing, but most often you
can find me programming in
<a target="_blank" href="https://www.python.org">Python</a>,
learning about practical repairs to internal combustion engines, or answering
hypothetical questions on
<a target="_blank" href="https://worldbuilding.stackexchange.com">StackExchange World Building</a>.
I also enjoy reading! Some of my favorite books are Isaac Asimov's
<a target="_blank" href="https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/46654.The_Foundation_Trilogy">Foundation Trilogy</a>,
Patrick Ness'
<a target="_blank" href="https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13047567-chaos-walking">Chaos Walking Series</a>,
F.Scott Fitzgerald's
<a target="_blank" href="https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4671.The_Great_Gatsby">The Great Gatsby</a>,
and just about anything written by
<a target="_blank" href="https://www.goodreads.com/author/list/5194.Michael_Crichton">Michael Crichton</a>.
</p>
Oof, and I thought the last section was difficult. I don't like talking about myself, in case that wasn't
obvious. Shoot, that's more of a personal detail, should it have gone in the last section? Whatever,
moving on.
<br><br>
My interests are somewhat varied and changing all the time, but consistently my main interests are in
solving problems and learning about how other people solved problems. I like the
<a target="_blank" href="https://www.python.org">Python</a> programming language, the history of 19th and
20th centuries (particularly related to industry), and figuring out how to keep older cars working well
past their intended retirement date. I also like books! The
<a target="_blank" href="https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/46654.The_Foundation_Trilogy">Foundation Trilogy</a>
(Isaac Asimov),
<a target="_blank" href="https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4671.The_Great_Gatsby">The Great Gatsby</a>
(F.Scott Fitzgerald), and
<a target="_blank" href="https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13047567-chaos-walking">Chaos Walking</a>
(Patrick Ness) are some of my favorites.

<h2 class="about-title">What I Do</h2>
<p class="about-text">
I do lots of things! I work at
<a target="_blank" href="https://starry.com">Starry Inc</a>,
volunteer with
<a target="_blank" href="https://www.mindsmatterboston.org/">Minds Matter Boston</a>
as a youth mentor, and give excessively passionate tours at the
<a target="_blank" href="https://waterworksmuseum.org/">Boston Metropolitan Waterworks Museum</a>.
I also enjoy programming, urban and trail hiking, fixing my aging car, and maintaining
<a href="/homelab">my homelab equipment and systems</a>.
Ok this is the easy one, I do lots of things! I volunteer with
<a target="_blank" href="https://www.mindsmatterboston.org/">Minds Matter Boston</a> as a youth mentor and give
unnecessarily enthusiastic tours at the
<a target="_blank" href="https://waterworksmuseum.org/">Boston Metropolitan Waterworks Museum</a>. I also
work on a few open source software projects, try to travel when and where I can, and constantly find new things to
<s>break</s> fix on my car.
