Twenty-something techie living in the San Francisco Bay Area. Prone to ridiculousness. Involved in fandom in general rather than any particular fandom, with a particular focus on history, literature, and sff. Obsessed with transformative works of all kinds. Brain currently being eaten by bandom.

Saucy pedantic wretch. Known gadfly. Compulsive devil's advocate. Prone to treating pop culture like high art and high art like pop culture.

Superpowers: Slightly-better-than-average vision, superhuman immune system, and knowing lots of inane facts.

Fatal flaws: Easily distracted by patterns in floor tiles, allergic to many animals, more vegetables, and even a few minerals. Unable to control proper nouns. Works in online advertising (and enjoys it).

Really, why talk about myself when I can have others do it for me?

Access Policy:
I tend to follow people as the whim strikes me, generally if the content is interesting, and will generally say hi when I do. Feel free to follow or unfollow me at will.

Unless otherwise noted, I've made all the icons I use. Please feel free to reuse and/or transform any of my icons as you see fit, with one exception: my default icon (the cursive ampersand) tends to be my all-purpose avatar for this username, and I'd be REALLY confused if I saw someone else using it.
