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. 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 lifewinning@gmail.com.
