Welcome to About.

Who I am

I'm in my 30's, born and raised in Lincoln, a downwardly mobile child of the gifted program. In my early education I was mentored by some fabulous human beings including Nancy McCleery and Sally Herrin. I got a BA in English from Tulane University/Newcomb College in New Orleans where my life was the most boring sitcom you can imagine. I'm now class conscious and happily partnered.

How to contact me:


You can join my Patreon and get goodies from me such as random content, hard copy zines and handbound compendia. More will come as soon as I can think of it, assuming this shit even works for me.

If you liked something I wrote and want to pay me for it, you can also do a one-time donation via Paypal.
