About Me

Love for all creatures, great and small — a motto I live by. I love helping people and animals grow and develop. and creating things, especially digitally: websites, videos, graphics, stories, spreadsheets. I love a good spreadsheet. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, biking, gardening, caring for my pets & plants, and playing relaxing video games like Stardew Valley and Animal Crossing.

Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble. #goodtrouble -- John Lewis
