now

I'm living in Portland, Oregon for my third spring. 

  • I work full-time for the University of Texas at Austin as a software engineer / IT trainer. That means I spend my days writing example code and documentation to teach other developers how to do new things. I'm still working from home full-time. 
  • I'm the conference chair of DjangoCon US 2017
  • I'm cantering in my horseback riding lessons and hoping to go out on the trail later this year.
  • I'm in year three of being a Big with Big Brothers Big Sisters. My Little is entering fifth grade. 
  • Current favorite podcast: Harry Potter and the Sacred Text
  • I'm doing Camp NaNoWriMo. I've never really focused on creative writing and I'm looking forward to it! My goal is only 20,000 words, which seems doable.
