Hello, world! I'm Amy.

こんにちは世界! 私はエイミーです. Check me out

I’m really effing weird.

I’m also a polymath.

What's up with the weird cover photo?
My job requires me to do a ton of image discovery on stock photo sites. It is a weird and frustrating process. This cover image is one example. It came up as a top result in a search for “vegetable”. And, I dunno, it makes me laugh.

Design

I’ve been professionally designing for 19+ years. I’ve been doing it well for about 10+ years. So I’m good at getting better at things.

Development

I’ve been making websites, software, apps, and games since middle school. I’m enthusiastic about ReactJS, Rails, and WordPress projects in particular.

Writing

I’m best at creative copy and writing instructions, guides, and explainers. I also write fluently in Spanish and Arabic and enjoy writing essays and reports.

Philosophy + Research

I’m particularly interested in the juncture of ethics, governance, mathematics, physics, and dynamic social and economic systems.

Data Analysis

Right now I’m working on developing tools to help the individual analyze their own data and microdata in ways most useful to themselves (not marketers).

BAMF

I’ve survived a lot and accomplished even more by thriving in stressful, high-stakes situations.
