Hi, I'm Drew Pendergrass. My fair trade, artisanally-crafted, 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 fake startup that sells logs on wheels, a stupid Chrome extension, and esoteric sorting algorithms, as well as my research papers and conference presentations in atmospheric science and related fields.
Currently, I am a doctoral student in Environmental Engineering at Harvard University, studying under Daniel Jacob. I am on staff for Harvard Magazine, and I freelance on the side for publications including Harper's and Current Affairs (send me stories at email@example.com). Formerly, I wrote for the Harvard Political Review and the weekly magazine of The Harvard Crimson. More importantly, I am not a substitute for a medical doctor, I have nothing to do with explosions, and I appreciate knowledge of the outcome of a given situation.
An essay I wrote for the January-February 2020 issue of Harvard Magazine on beauty, mathematics, and environmental science: "Working at Beauty."
Q. How can I contact you?
A. You can follow/DM me on Instagram or Twitter, but it's best to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. However, if your email is unpleasant, you should direct it to email@example.com, an inbox I definitely read.
Q. Who are you?
A. Well, to start off, I am not a closed, non-orientable, boundary-free manifold, I keep the old gods, I am capable of reading English, I am reluctant to resort to black magic, 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 CV.
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.

Maybe it is the nothingness that is real and our entire dream is nonexistent, but in that case we feel that these phrases of music, and these notions that exist in relation to our dream, must also be nothing. We will perish, but we have for hostages these divine captives who will follow us and share our fate. And death in their company is less bitter, less inglorious, and perhaps less probable.
-Marcel Proust, from Swann's Way
