Longer, first-person bio

I grew up in southern California and went to college at Santa Clara University, where I studied Theatre Arts and Women's & Gender Studies. Since college, I've done a year of service with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in Baltimore, MD; spent a year in China with the Maryknoll China Teachers Program; and spent two years living and working at L'Arche Heartland, a community of adults with and without developmental disabilities in the Kansas City metro area. I'm now happy to be back in the SF Bay Area and working again with adults with disabilities.

I write essays and blog at Skiffy and Fanty, The Ruined Report, and right here. Sometimes I write and perform poetry, usually either performance/slam poetry or genre poetry. When there's time, I write fiction, usually shortish fiction, usually science fiction or fantasy.

I'm a member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry Association (SFPA), and you should join too. I'm a sinophile who studies Mandarin Chinese. I'm also a GNU/Linux user, a big fan of Free Software, a supporter of the Software Freedom Conservancy, and a hobbyist sysadmin and web/ebook designer.

I love science fiction and intentional communities. I like cooking, religion, podcasts, critical theory, and hiking. I think copyright law is fascinating. I tap dance.
