Hello internet friends! I am a product designer and game developer who sometimes writes about tech, games, and culture. I love thinking about technology, race, gender and how these things impact the world we live in.

If you're in an open relationship, but neither of you ever see anybody, does that mean you're #lowpoly?

Soooo I have been working on a piece about UX and game design since 2015. I spent a lot of time reorganizing the content to make sense.

The house I booked in Philadelphia is perfectly located and really cute. What a relief ~

Singular they (including "themself") is real and you should use it

I'm not even going to try and meet up with a million people. I'm going to hang with husbae and that's it. I need a break from running around :blobugh:

My friends and I are driving to Philly for PAX Unplugged tonight ✨

...I probably shouldn't have booked so much travel that I'm somewhere different every other weekend x.x

After PAX Unplugged, I'll have a whole month without any travel :breathe:

Very excited to feel like I can focus on churning out art for my solo game. Travel is fun but soul-consuming.

It's also possible that constant travel isn't the culprit to blame for my feelings of fatigue. I will scapegoat whatever I want :hotboi:

Girlfriends was a good show (I think?), but I'm glad we're mostly past the era of calling friends who are women "girlfriends"

In a world where Girlfriends is a show about a polycule consisting of four Black gay and bisexual women

Here's a fun card game about assumptions! I played it yesterday and we laughed a lot youthinkthisisagame.com/
