"Content so exclusive it cannot be found in any of the world's most famous museums."
Hi, I'm Drew Pendergrass. My gluten-free, fair trade, organic website is lovingly built from whatever I decide to post online. It hosts a variety of projects, resources, and ephemera made over the years, including experimental music, my writing, a video game, a startup that sells logs on wheels, a stupid Chrome extension, and esoteric sorting algorithms.
Currently, I study physics and mathematics at Harvard University. For my first three years of college I was an undergraduate research assistant in Daniel Jacob's computational atmospheric chemistry group at Harvard, which culminated in a research paper on Beijing air quality published in Geophysical Research Letters. I spent summer 2018 as a research assistant for Amos Tai at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, funded by the Harvard-China Project on the Environment; I explored the use of topological data analysis and manifold learning to understand the nonlinear interactions between ozone, meteorology, and the biosphere (it didn't work). I currently work with Samuel Myers and Matthew Smith at the T.H. Chan School of Public Health, where I research how drought affects global agricultural commodity trade with an emphasis on health outcomes in low-income nations. I write for the Harvard Political Review and the weekly magazine of The Harvard Crimson. More importantly, I am reluctant to resort to black magic, I have absolutely no intention of running for Senate in the great state of Minnesota, and I am not reptilian.
Read an article I cowrote in The Crimson on two Harvard scientists and the unethical tests they ran to create the first birth control pill: "The Bitter Pill: Harvard and the Dark History of Birth Control."
Q. Why does this page keep changing?
A. This page is randomly generated by the server on each load. Most of the page's contents are not displayed on one particular load, so for the full experience reload a bunch of times.
Q. Why don't you just host this crap on Github like a normal person?
A. Github only allows static websites. I wanted my website to be different for every visitor. DrewPendergrass.com, like life itself, must always be in flux. You could say I'm an artist.
Q. Who are you?
A. Well, to start off, I am not to my knowledge a victim of a mummy's curse, my mind's eye exists only in a figurative sense, I have never commanded an army composed of more than 100,000 soldiers, I hold no world records, and I did not orchestrate the Camp David Accords. If you for some strange reason would like to know something substantial about me, you can check out my projects page or my CV.
Q. How can I contact you?
Please address all complaints and denials of climate change to firstname.lastname@example.org, an email address that is definitely not just a sassy autoresponder.
Q. What is your favorite artificial flavor?
A. I am a big green apple fan, but I can go for some watermelon as well. Some days I go wild and get blue raspberry, especially if it's spelled 'Blu Razzberry.'
For poetry makes nothing happen: it survives
In the valley of its making where executives
Would never want to tamper, flows on south
From ranches of isolation and the busy griefs,
Raw towns that we believe and die in; it survives,
A way of happening, a mouth.
