(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.)
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.
I do a range of things to make money. Sometimes I do residencies and fellowships, freelance writing words, freelance writing code, and sometimes sell things I’ve made. I also have a Patreon that helps cover the bills.
And, yes, I could always use more work. If you think I could be useful to your endeavors please get in touch at email@example.com.
