Territorial Acknowledgement

I live, work, and play on the traditional territories of the lək̓ʷəŋən-speaking peoples, now known as the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations, as well as, the W̱SÁNEĆ nations. As an immigrant settler, I am grateful to call this beautiful place, Abbotsford – British Columbia, my home.

Quick Links:

This WordPress website hosts my bio, blogs, photo gallery, portfolio, and resume. I also use it to experiment with new technologies and theories.

Its purpose is to learn, practise, discuss, and share information and knowledge for me and others. It is also an archive of references and memories of my life and others. See below for credits and policies.

🎨 Theme

I am using a modified version of the Björk theme from Anders Norén.

👋 Accessibility

While I continue to learn web, digital, and offline accessibility for projects I work on, I hope to practice the concepts on my website.

If you notice accessibility improvements that I could make for better compliance or if I have missed alt text on an image (OR have a better suggestion for alt text), please let me know.

🤑 Marketing and Monetization

I developed this website to share my bio, portfolio, experiences and knowledge. While it is not my main source of income (and I don’t want to put pressure on it at the moment), I may still include some affiliate links from other websites and sell some of my services and content, which means that if you choose to make a purchase, I could earn a commission or credit (at no additional cost to you). I do not promote products or services based on our affiliation. Instead, I become affiliates for products/services I already love and use/use for myself or folks I know.

I value transparency and accountability. Thus, if I insert an affiliated link or publish a guest post, I will include a label next to the link or indicate this in the footnote of the post.

👀 Privacy

I track and store the data of my website visitors, including their IP addresses, time and date of visit, and time spent on this website.

In short, I only collect what I need to run this website and improve accessibility. I won’t sell or share any data I collect with a third party.

See our privacy policy for more information.
