Hi, I'm Drew Pendergrass. My boneless, low-sodium, organic 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, and I freelance on the side for publications including Harper's and The Guardian (send me stories at firstname.lastname@example.org). More importantly, I am not a closed, non-orientable, boundary-free manifold, I appreciate knowledge of the outcome of a given situation, and I am not reptilian.
An essay I wrote for the January-February 2020 issue of Harvard Magazine on beauty, mathematics, and environmental science: "Working at Beauty."
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?
A. You can follow/DM me on Twitter, but I'm trying to stop using it so much, so it's best to email me at drew [at] drewpendergrass [dot] com (or the academic address in my CV). 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 did not orchestrate the Camp David Accords, I take my eggs over easy, I keep all my eggs in separate baskets, I have never commanded an army composed of more than 100,000 soldiers, and to my knowledge, there is no portrait of me that ages in my place. If you for some strange reason would like to know something substantial about me, you can check out my projects page or my CV.

I am, somehow, less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein's brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops.
