Hey, I'm Logan Mortimer. I'm based in Melbourne where I work at Xero as a Lead Engineer in the Engineering Experience team.

I’m interested in all sorts of software concepts including Resilience Engineering, Functional Programming, Cellular Automata, LLMs and just about everything to do with DevOps.

I’m a hobby photographer, enthusiastic coffee drinker, and all around book devourer. I’m originally from Dunedin in the south of New Zealand. There I worked for a genomic biotech startup. I’m still interested in RNQ-Seq and the black hole of sequence alignment. While in Dunedin I had the fortune of dark skies and an aurora-friendly latitude. I did a lot of astro photography and enjoyed chasing the aurora.

On this blog I write a mix of software development, photography, poetry, and books. Generally it’s what I’ve been learning, reading, seeing, and doing. I practise photography with a Sony a7rii and more recently I’ve been shooting film on an Olympus OM-1.
