I’m a poet who studies data science and sometimes writes prose. This space is primarily a konvolute for curating language and media relevant to my creative-research interests, but you’ll also see regular pictures of my pacific parrotlet, Lester Young, as well as occasional sloppy essays, commentary and diary entries. For old posts, visit my Tumblr, which may or may not work. Pre 2010 blogthings are still up my old blogger blog, Terminal Humming.
I grew up overseas (Chile, Papua New Guinea, Mexico, China) and in Maine. After a decade of working for various non-profits and public policy organizations in Washington, DC, I moved to San Diego for love, left it for love, and moved back to DC for work (just kidding, obviously it was for love).
Interests: affective labor, birds, la quotidienne, swamps, operatic suffering, melodrama, disco

- Affect and technology / technology as apparatus for feeling
