For those unfamiliar with how Jekyll works, check out https://jekyllrb.com/ for all the details, or read up on just the basics of front matter, writing posts, and creating pages.

The GitHub repository is simply a mirror of the GitLab repository.

Just a fun little single pager I whipped up to test out my new scroll events plugin
(github.com/ajlkn/jquery.scrollex). Clean, simple, fully responsive, and loaded with
all the usual pre-styled elements. Enjoy :)

PS: Not sure how to get that contact form working? Give formspree.io a try (it's awesome).
