What am I doing?

As a software developer, writer, theater technician, and video editor, I have a lot of widely different ideas and duties that I can’t pursue all at once. My attention tends to shift heavily from one area to another depending on what I find most compelling, what I think people will find most interesting, and/or what’s going on in my life. This page exists to remind myself and declare to the world what I’m working on, what I’ve finished, and what ideas I’d like to pursue later. It’s based on Joel Runyon and Thomas Frank‘s impossible lists.

Most of my time will be dedicated to the highlighted items below, but I’m open to requests and suggestions. If you’re particularly interested in something that I do, let me know in an email or the comments. I’ll try to do more of it in the future!
