New website plan

After spending years on social networks, I realized there’s nothing like home(page)! My depression was my excuse of neglecting it, but now I’m better and I should pull things back together.

Electric Hearts

Electric Hearts is my original sci-fi project in-development for more than a decade. It takes place in the age of androids after the fall of human civilization. Readers will follow the struggle of generations of androids through the dark age of post-apocalyptic Earth into their new frontier among the stars. When the project is ready, it will have a standalone website.


I provide mascot design for free and open source projects. Free of charge and under free license.
