  • Tower Hill

    It’s been a while since I’ve had anything to share, the pandemic has changed a lot of things for me, one of them being a lot of London theatre technicians have left the city, leaving a lot more work for the technicians who were able to stay. So while this bittersweet to say, I have…

  • I Have Changed My Name by One Letter

    A couple of weeks ago, I took a big step in my journey to being myself by legally changing my name. Although, really it’s closer to ‘adjusting’ my name. I’ve gone from Julian Ben Pichelski to Juliann Lillian Pichelski. That means that my pen name has also changed from J. B. Pichelski to J. L.…

    While in lockdown I’ve been trying my best to keep up with writing. I’m now really excited to announce that my next play will be hosted on Zoom! It’ll be a short play about trans-allyship with a discussion at the end of it. Click here for more details on the show as well as how…

  • Bug Count

    I’ve been working on a new coding project this month. Here’s a new game I made for the TeenyTiny DragonRuby MiniGameJam. All you have to do is count how many bugs (green squares) are on the screen and click on the correct answer. It’s very simple but it does get progressively harder the more you…
