I hope to create art & software that celebrate the queerness of human experience.

I make music with Teacup Gorilla, theater with Grapefruit Lab, and web software with OddBird. I’m an Invited Expert on the CSS Working Group, a core contributor to the Sass language, and a regular speaker at conferences around the world.

wearing a bright yellow leather jacket,
