"Content so exclusive it cannot be found in any of the world's most famous museums."
Hi, I'm Drew Pendergrass. My boneless, organic, low-sodium website is lovingly built from whatever I decide to post online. It hosts a variety of projects, resources, and ephemera made over the years, including experimental music, my writing, a video game, a startup that sells logs on wheels, a stupid Chrome extension, and esoteric sorting algorithms.
Currently, I study physics and mathematics at Harvard University. For my first three years of college I was an undergraduate research assistant in Daniel Jacob's computational atmospheric chemistry group at Harvard, which culminated in a research paper on Beijing air quality published in Geophysical Research Letters. I currently work with Samuel Myers and Matthew Smith at the Harvard School of Public Health, where I research how drought affects global agricultural commodity trade with an emphasis on health outcomes in low-income nations. I also collaborate with Larry Horowitz and Vaishali Naik at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory modeling mid-21st century air quality in China. I am on staff for Harvard Magazine, the Harvard Political Review, and the weekly magazine of The Harvard Crimson. More importantly, I hold no world records, I am not a closed, non-orientable, boundary-free manifold, and to my knowledge, there is no portrait of me that ages in my place.
If you want to chat, send me an email at email@example.com. Please address all complaints to firstname.lastname@example.org, an address that is definitely not just a sassy autoresponder.
Read an article I cowrote in The Crimson on two Harvard scientists and the unethical tests they ran to create the first birth control pill: "The Bitter Pill: Harvard and the Dark History of Birth Control."
Q. Why does this page keep changing?
A. This page is randomly generated by the server on each load. Most of the page's contents are not displayed on one particular load, so for the full experience reload a bunch of times.
Q. Why don't you just host this crap on Github like a normal person?
A. Github only allows static websites. I wanted my website to be different for every visitor. DrewPendergrass.com, like life itself, must always be in flux. You could say I'm an artist.
Q. How can I contact you?
Please address all complaints and denials of climate change to email@example.com, an email address that is definitely not just a sassy autoresponder.
Q. Why don't you like Heathcliff from Wuthering Heights?
A. It seems like the whole world is against me on this one, but Heathcliff is a jerk! And no, his circumstances do not justify his jerkiness! Look, I get why Heathcliff wants revenge, and I know he was wronged, but I can't help but just be repulsed by his behavior. Heathcliff apologists, it's YOU who should be defending yourselves!
Q. Who are you?
A. Well, to start off, I am capable of reading English, I take my eggs over easy, I am not a substitute for a medical doctor, you cannot prove I have sympathies for the former state of Burgundy, and I have never advocated on behalf of, or against, the Free Silver movement. If you for some strange reason would like to know something substantial about me, you can check out my projects page or my CV.
"So fun you won't even need friends!"
The compassion felt for fragility is always associated with the love for real beauty, because we are keenly conscious of the fact that the existence of the really beautiful things ought to be assured forever, and they are not.
