Politics. Web development. And everything in between.

Hi, I’m Alex, aka Unixfy.

Welcome to my (small) website! I’m a student in the US.

In school, I enjoy studying the social sciences, especially history, political science, and international relations.

In my free time, I enjoy dabbling with technology. I’m a self-taught web developer and system administrator. I maintain my own lab with well over 30 servers around the world.

Hobbies

Politics & Law

I participate in several real-life and online political/government simulations.

Web Dev & Design

I have designed & built many websites and web apps, using technologies like WordPress, Vue.js, and Django.

Computing

I manage a nice collection of servers as well as my own network. (Peer with me at AS139921!)

Gaming

Simulator & strategy are my type. GeoGuessr and Sporcle are great as well.

Food

Whenever I visit a new city, I always try foods that I can’t get anywhere else. I’ve also made it my goal to try two local non-chain restaurants near me each week. (It’s been going well so far!)

U

Much more

I enjoy a lot of other things, and I’m always looking to learn more!

My Projects

GambitProfit.com

I built my blog a few years ago, starting with Ghost and moving to WordPress. Today, it's running on WordPress with the GeneratePress theme. I use most of GeneratePress's premium functionality on the website; for instance, the cool cards on the homepage were created...
