Greetings! I'd like to introduce myself and The Tangerine Peel.

Hi everyone!

My name is Gernene. I’m starting this blog, The Tangerine Peel, to explore design and technical ideas while providing support and resources for creators.

The name “Tangerine Peel” is both a play on my name (Gernene Tan) and a reference to analysis and deeper understanding (peeling away the orange skin).

Throughout my development as a programmer and designer, I’ve learned many skills/tricks that I sometimes wish I’d picked up on sooner. Much of the guidance I found easily available catered to individuals who were usually more experienced and specialized.

My writing aims to examine the worlds of art, design, and technology through the curious eyes of a younger, less certain individual. Join me on my personal journey as we learn and grow together.
