Hi, I'm Drew Pendergrass. My GMO-free, low-sodium, boneless 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, atmospheric physics, my writing, a video game, and an anemic, generally purposeless blog.

Currently, I study physics and mathematics at Harvard University. I am an undergraduate research assistant in the Atmospheric Chemistry Modeling Group, where I use machine learning and extreme value theory to study the connections between climate and air quality. I am the publisher of the Harvard Political Review and an associate editor for the weekly magazine of the The Crimson. More importantly, I keep all my eggs in separate baskets, I have no dietary restrictions, and I hold no world records.

Spotlight

Read an article I wrote in the Harvard Political Review about the sky high price of insulin in the United States: "How Insulin Became Unaffordable."

A Brief Q&A

Q. How can I contact you?

A. You can follow me on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Soundcloud; you can contact me at drew@drewpendergrass.com.

Please address all complaints and denials of climate change to grievances@drewpendergrass.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. 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 does not allow for randomly-generated websites. My website, like life itself, must always be in flux. You could say I'm an artist.

Q. Who are you?

A. Well, to start off, I have no trouble distinguishing my right from my left, I take my eggs over easy, I am not a closed, non-orientable, boundary-free manifold, I have not, nor will I ever, be a victim of a mummy's curse, and I am not reptilian. If you for some strange reason would like to know something substantial about me, you can check out my projects page or my resume.

A Moving, and Random, Quotation

There is no shortage of good days. It is good lives that are hard to come by. A life of good days lived in the senses is not enough. The life of sensation is the life of greed; it requires more and more. The life of the spirit requires less and less; time is ample and its passage sweet. Who would call a day spent reading a good day? But a life spent reading -- that is a good life.

-Annie Dillard
