Hi 👋 I’m Amritpan.

Currently, I am an engineer at the Washington Post. I’m interested in compilers, language design, degrowth, and dogs.

Prior to this, I spent several years living and working in Asia doing human rights documentation and field research. Back stateside, I launched 2 startups (sold the first at its height to start a second, which failed), and went back to the grind as an engineer.

I enjoy taking risks, earnest people, gardening (ask me about grafting fruit trees & tomatoes), building stuff (I’ve remodeled half a house on my own), and starting things I know nothing about and only wondering what I’ve gotten myself into when I’m knee-deep and it’s too late to turn back.

Think I can help with a project or idea in any way? Hit me up!
