A portrait of me by my wife Julia

Hi! I’m Artëm.

I’m passionate about computers, arts, and writing. I grew up in Russia, where I majored in applied math and computer security. I now live and work in (mostly) sunny Philadelphia with my wife and son.

On this website, I rant about programming and share my notes on macOS automation, personal productivity systems, and pop culture. In case you’re looking for a place to start, my most popular post is “The Language of Programming”. Or you can just play tetris.

My wife Julia is a versatile product designer and illustrator. You can marvel at her work and get in touch by visiting her website. Aside from raising our son together, we occasionally collaborate on smaller projects, like our 2013 wedding website or a waltzing manatee video game.
