I'm a Ph.D. graduate student in linguistics, web designer, computer programmer, and photographer.
I live in the U.S., but I've been to Italy, Greece, Hungary, Slovenia, Romania, Austria, Germany, The Netherlands, The U.K., Ireland, Mexico, and Canada. And of course, always seeking to add more to that list. On my immediate to-do: Thailand, Iceland, France.
I love minimalism, as an art, a way of life, and a way to travel. I photograph people, primarily, always trying to distill, flatten, and preserve whatever aesthetic makes them, them. What I take as the highest compliment is when someone sees a photograph of mine, and says something like "Oh, that is SO typical Peter Bloch" (or whoever). I make web applications because I enjoy telling computers what to do, how to handle what other people want to do, and making using computers easier and effective for other people (as well as myself).
I like Stars, Skrillex, Sleigh Bells, Sigur Rós, Sufjan Stevens, Sunset Rubdown, The Streets— and that's just the S's.
