About my digital presence:
I learned much about web design by keeping up this site over the years. Originally, I used Blogger to start my online journaling, but switched to Wordpress about three years in. Both these sites required me to learn some basic code to make it better. The advancement of web tools over the past few years have changed the game, so this site is now running on Squarespace. I doubt I will ever need to code again.

When I started the blog, I called it "Beit Carr," with "beit" being the Hebrew word for "house." Since the pronunciation constantly confused people, I switched it over to House of Carr. Note that this was years before the popular Netflix series House of Cards, so it wasn't meant to be a play on words (even though it is now).

Finally, by switching all these sites over the years, there are likely to be some broken image and hyperlinks. I apologize if that's annoying. I've tried to update the site as best as possible and hopefully you can find what you're looking for.
