I’m Birunthan Mohanathas, but most people call me Biru or, on the internet, poiru.

I enjoy…

  • Computers
    See LinkedIn for my employment history as a software engineer and GitHub for my projects and contributions.

  • Backpacking
    My favorite past time is long walks in the wilderness with an ultralight backpack. I hiked the John Muir Trail in 2015 and hope to thru-hike the likes of the Pacific Crest Trail and the Great Divide Trail in the future.

  • Minimalism
    I live simply with few needs and posessions. I like exploring our beautiful planet with just a small pack on my back.

  • Stoicism
    My framework for how I try to live my life.

  • Photography
    One of these days I will get around to sharing my shots!
