Longer, first-person bio

I like science fiction and fantasy (SFF), particularly the written kind. I get excited about stories that rethink family structures, imagine intentional communities, pay attention to religion and people of faith, investigate the commons, or obliterate gender. I write about SFF on this site as well as on Skiffy and Fanty. I'm a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry Association (SFPA), and I enjoy writing SFF fiction and poetry.

I'm a GNOME/Fedora (Linux) user, a big fan of Free Software, and a supporter of the Software Freedom Conservancy. I like to make websites and administer GNU/Linux servers.

I'm a graduate of Santa Clara University, and after college I did a year of service with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in Baltimore, MD. These days, I contribute to and manage The Ruined Report, a blog by and for former Jesuit volunteers and friends that features posts about social justice, simple living, community, and spirituality.

Professionally, I work as a digital accessibility consultant, helping to make websites and apps work well for people with disabilities and for people who use assistive technologies like screen readers. I'm a Certified Professional in Accessibility Core Competencies (CPACC) and a member of the International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP). Before I started working in digital accessibility, I worked in disability services, starting with two years at L'Arche Heartland, a community of adults with and without developmental disabilities in the Kansas City metro area.
