About Me

Juan Villela

Hi, I’m Juan Villela and I like websites. Most of my time is spent making them for strangers online. When I’m not working, I’m probably still coding.

Writing isn’t my strong suit. But I do it quite often. It’s therapeutic and helps me clear my head. In this blog, I write notable things of interest and some of my coding projects. I’m not sure what else to say so here’s a list:

  • I like stickers.
  • From time to time I build mechanical keyboards.
  • I’m somewhat into audio gear.
  • I really like cooking.
  • I’m big into JRPGs.
  • I collect Magic The Gathering cards. I’ve never played a single game, though.
  • I really like making lists.
  • I delivered a baby once. It wasn’t magical.
