About this stranger

I’m Isaac Blake, a pretentious high school student, lover of nature, and computer nerd. I plead guilty to spending far more time alone than with other humans.

I have a passion for nature, and spend hours outside each day (in my imaginary world). State and national parks give me sustenance.

I also have a passion for open source and permissive licenses; I believe the future of software development lies therein.

Messing with computers has been a longstanding hobby for me; I’ve been playing with HTML and JavaScript since I was 11. This site is hosted on GitHub Pages, stemming from the Jekyll Now theme with a few changes to layout and CSS. I have experience running various kinds of servers, from Minecraft (yeah, I know) to PHP on Apache and NGINX.

Since visiting Iceland in the summer of 2016 and exploring Icelanders’ creative uses of geothermal energy, I’ve dreamed of connecting Mother Nature with computers. By pursuing a career in environmental engineering, I’m hoping doing so is not as paradoxical a task as it sounds.

My Volunteer/Passion Projects

In 2016, I began documenting the contents of the Pioneer Florida Museum and Village and using that register to create engaging museum tours. I hope to get younger generations excited about the history of Pioneer Florida. The website is viewable here, and the source is here.
