Akira Hack Of All Trades

About Me

Hi! I’m Akira!

I’m a software developer. Right now, I’m working in Javascript, React, HTML/CSS, and I’m learning the joys of server-side JS w/ Express, Node and MongoDB. Someday I’ll learn Typescript. Maybe someday I’ll even learn Assembly.

I love to share, teach, and create, so here you’ll find all kinds of tech resources as well as info on my passions: music, fermentation, leadership, growing my own food, art, theater, cultural explorations, and being outside.

Talks I’ve given

I love teaching people what I’ve learned! Here’s some talks where I do just that:

Stuff I’ve written


A communal guide to connect and educate those working legally in the Psychedelic space with people interested in using Psychedelics for therapeutic care and enhancing well-being.

We are undergoing a massive redesign and rebuild of the Tripsitters website, and I’m lucky to be the development team lead. We’re in a wonderful exploration phase right now, with an emphasis on leveraging the open web, leveraging incredible visual design, and encouraging and facilitating organic community involvement.

Alarmed by the steep uptick in domestic violence calls since the Covid-19 lockdown, myself and some friends are developing a secure web app to quickly match domestic violence victims with appropriate community resources based on their individual situation.
