About me

My name is Travis Ennis and I am a software engineer interested in books, writing, coding, and photography based in Fortville, Indiana. I was born in Washington, Indiana in 1979 and I attended Indiana University from 1998-2002 and again from 2004-2006, where I received a BA in History and then a Masters in Library and Information Science. If you want, check out some of my previous work.

About this website

This is a static site that I build with Metalsmith and a variety of plugins, many of which I wrote myself. I store it in a private Github repository. I use Github Actions to build and deploy the site out to an AWS S3 bucket which then gets pushed out to CloudFront. All of the pages are simple Markdown. One of the things about it doing this way is that I can use iAWriter and Working Copy on my iPhone and update this website directly from my phone wherever I am. I like building websites, I could tinker with this website to the exclusion of all else, so to prevent that from happening, I have kept the styling to a bare minimum. I wouldn't say it is brutalist in style, but I try to aim for that. As it is I still have to stop myself from tweaking the design here and there. It keeps me out of trouble.
