About Me

Hello! My name is Chris Lakin1 (shocking, I know) and I am an aspiring generalist. I.e., I am trying to grow in many different directions, rather than focusing on only one.

If you like this website, you’ll like me.

I value brevity in published work, a trait which is reflected in my writing. However, if there’s anything else you’d like to know about me or about any of these essays—or even if you just want to have a conversation with me—reach out! (And there is no need to be brief.)

If you would like to keep in touch with me, sign up for my email list.
