Who are you? What do you do?

Books (history, science, sf&f), art, coding, design, typesetting, genealogy. I’m Mormon. By day I’m a senior software engineer at the BYU Harold B. Lee Library, comfortably surrounded by millions of books.

You seem to like books.

Mmm, yes.

So, what’s this site about?

Stuff I’ve made, mainly. Most of it is Mormon stuff and language-related stuff, though there’s art and ebooks and more as well.

If you don’t mind a very personal question, how often do you blog?

Less often than I used to. Once a month if I’m lucky.

Before we change topics, where did you bury the bodies?


Very happily married, with three kids.

And you’re LDS?

Yes, very much so. My Mormon.org profile and “why I’m a Mormon” post go into a little more detail. I also tend to work on Mormon-themed projects.

What’s this site running on?

Liquid nitrogen and continental drift.
