What I'm doing now

Currently based in a wonderful hipstery art community in Baltimore, MD. I've got back into traveling, at least to every state and federal park in Maryland. It is a way to help me relax, give a change of environment, and spark inspiration. I did try camping since 2020 and the pandemic, and it offered the same benefits and felt safer than hopping in a plane.

A relaxing path in a forest. My happy place.
Forests: my happy place.

I love creating and designing digital products: illustrations, websites, web applications, etc. I'm a maker at heart.

This page was inspired by the awesome Derek Sivers.


I spend my time on these things:


GaryBacon.com is being discontinued, eventually. I decided to split the blog into separate websites that stay focused to the topics and context in which I write about.

  • Gary.Design
    Design posts and my portfolio.
  • evenpace
    Productivity and the resources that I love to share. It’s about growing, embracing neurodivergence, and helping others in their day to day lives.
  • Youtube: Tech Bacon
    Videos on productivity, tech, and user experience design.

Thinking about how to maintain my reading list. Which website should I put it on? Should I make another? 🤔

If my activities or priorities change, I’ll update this page. Last updated on June 21, 2023.
