By day I’m an engineer at Wave, building faster and cheaper money transfer in Africa. Otherwise I enjoy reading, climbing, hiking, making music, contra dancing, trying to improve the world, and various other strange activities.


benkuhn.net is made with the Hugo static site generator with a custom theme. The footer art is by Eve Bigaj. The site is hosted by AWS S3/CloudFront and deployed via Github Actions. Analytics (backend only, no tracking) use AWS Athena and Quicksight (writeup). Comments are managed by Staticman hosted on Digital Ocean; mailing list signups go through AWS Lambda + Mailgun.

Everything on the site should work with Javascript disabled; if it doesn’t, let me know.
