Hi, I'm Aires!

On the Internet, nobody knows you're a lion.

I'm a creative writer working mainly in fantasy fiction. I work in the software industry as a professional B2B marketer, and I occassionally hack away at C++, Java, and Node.js apps. I also know my way around a Linux terminal (I use Arch, btw). When I'm not hunched over a keyboard staring at Visual Studio Code or Typora, I'm mixing music, biking, or journaling.
