I’m Mark, jack of a few trades and aspiring master of at least one.
I’m a systems programmer.
I’ve worked on emulators, operating systems, and compilers; reverse-engineered binaries and written exploits; and spent an ungodly amount of time in gdb.
I’m a writer.
I write an assortment of technical deep dives, essays, and tweets. The goal is to articulate nuance, record lessons, and think more clearly.
I used to work in infosec but now I work in music tech. In 2020, I took a gap year and spent it making music and programming (including contributions to the Linux kernel and LLDB). I also created Timestamps, a workflow product for DJs, which I grew to a humble $50 MRR before making it free. I spent the fall working at a fast food restaurant.
Anything you’d like to hear about? DMs are open — feel free to hit me up on Twitter.
What’s your email? I’ll let you know when I write something new:
