Hello!

(I hate most photos of myself, but this one is pretty funny. I think I'm giving a side-eye to Brian House at a party.)

So who are you?

I'm just a person. I live on a small island off the coast of America. I wrote a book about finding the internet on the street.

I am terrible at being professionally legible and enough people have shamed me about this that I'm making an effort.

Wait But How Do You Make Money?

I do a range of things to make money–pick up residencies and fellowships, freelance writing words, freelance writing code, and sometimes sell things I’ve made (well, really I just sold this one book I made one time).

And, yes, I could always use more work. Money is hard when you’re self-employed! If you think I could be useful to your endeavors please get in touch at lifewinning@gmail.com. Or if you know a cool foundation that would fund me just being weird let me know, I’ve been looking for them.
