Emerson's Site

Developer/Sysadmin, college kid, musician, etc.

About Me

Hi, I’m Emerson. I’m a developer/sysadmin for Thinkbox. I used to write some blogs, which are below this section, however I discovered that writing code is more fun than writing blogs. A lot of my side projects can be found on Gitlab and a lot of my contributions to other projects can be found on GitHub.

If you want to contact me, emailing emerson@emersonveenstra.net is the best way. Otherwise, I’m emersonveenstra on Twitter and Telegram.
