Glad To Meet You!

Eli Gundry's Memoji Headshot

My name is Eli I only really write in lists, so here's my deal.

  • I am a πŸ§‘β€πŸ’»full stack web engineer.
  • I love to plan and πŸ‘¨β€πŸ³cook elaborate meals. It really activates the engineering part of my brain!
  • I have a πŸ€“non-traditional computer science education. I attended a vocational school in high school, taught myself web programming, bounced around colleges for computer science while working the entire time before deciding to go pro!
  • I am a Vim logo Vim user but I actively encourage everyone to use something else. Using Vim in 2021 is a cool bar trick.
  • Die hard Cleveland Browns logo Cleveland Browns fan and am convinced that we will win a Super Bowl one of these years.
  • I currently live in πŸ“Astoria, Queens. I didn't think I would settle down in Queens and love it as much as I do, but life is like that sometimes.
  • I have a 😼fat cat named Fonzie and I sorta have a tattoo of him on my arm.

How I'm Feeling

A while ago, I decided to start journaling my feelings. Being a software engineer, I made an API out of it and put it on my website. The favicon for the site the emoji for my latest entry.

Do You Code?

I make a living developing web applications. I jump all around the stack and will do whatever it takes to ship. Need me to do some devops to get this feature out? I gotcha. Some CSS is making a button look bad? I'll do my best. A query running to slow? Stop, I can't deal with all this excitement.

GitHub contribution calendars are not a good indicator of whether or not someone is a good developer, but they are very pretty.

What I'm Listening To

I listen to way too much music and I love to listen to full albums. I mainly listen to hip hop, indie rock and emo music. I occasionally write reviews of old albums that I love but aren't well known in a series called ICYMI.
