<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="">Worcester Polytechnic Institute</a>'s
Class of 2017 with a degree in
<a href="">Mechanical Engineering</a>.
I am an avid outdoorsman, a former Boy Scout, and had a lot of fun getting my
<a target="_blank" href="">SolidWorks Certified Professional Certification</a>
(even though I don't actually use it). I'm also a
<a target="_blank" href="">Type 1 Diabetic</a>
who enjoy's
<a target="_blank" href="">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
I was part of the <a target="_blank" href="">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="">Starry, Inc</a>. I like
hiking, mechanical design, and literary theory. I'm a
<a target="_blank" href="">Type-1 Diabetic</a>, I have a
<a target="_blank" href="">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="">Python</a>,
learning about practical repairs to internal combustion engines, or answering
hypothetical questions on
<a target="_blank" href="">StackExchange World Building</a>.
I also enjoy reading! Some of my favorite books are Isaac Asimov's
<a target="_blank" href="">Foundation Trilogy</a>,
Patrick Ness'
<a target="_blank" href="">Chaos Walking Series</a>,
F.Scott Fitzgerald's
<a target="_blank" href="">The Great Gatsby</a>,
and just about anything written by
<a target="_blank" href="">Michael Crichton</a>.
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.
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="">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="">Foundation Trilogy</a>
(Isaac Asimov),
<a target="_blank" href="">The Great Gatsby</a>
(F.Scott Fitzgerald), and
<a target="_blank" href="">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="">Starry Inc</a>,
volunteer with
<a target="_blank" href="">Minds Matter Boston</a>
as a youth mentor, and give excessively passionate tours at the
<a target="_blank" href="">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="">Minds Matter Boston</a> as a youth mentor and give
unnecessarily enthusiastic tours at the
<a target="_blank" href="">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.
