My parents showed me what this machine could do. The press of keys turning into words, turning into sentences; the way stories could spin out of the screen. The way I could say "hello, world," and the world would answer.
Beyond QBasic, beyond GOTO—I wandered into the web. Before I could learn to flinch fully from enthusiasm, I spilled it onto Geocities; pages about the things I loved, the >body< made manifest between zeroes and ones. The daydream of all the things I loved. A way to say, here I am.
I have a bachelor's degree in computer science and animate arts from Northwestern University.
