#introduction v. 2.0
Hi! I'm Steve. I teach undergrad at one of Pitt's regional campuses. I have a Master's in Comp Sci and another in Divinity (and a ton of student debt). Spiritual and religious, but in my own special syncretic way: influenced by Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Paganism.
Marxist-Humanist, cis male, gay, and polyamorous.
I like both video and tabletop games. I hoard books and vintage tech. I <3 FOSS
I am basically a giant teddy bear wolf thing. I offer hugs, glomps, head pats, scritches, belly rubs, and any other reasonable signs of affection peeps might be in need of today.

The way to do it on a budget for schmucks like me (and probably you, if you're producing instagram type video) is to use software available here: https://trace.umd.edu/peat
I am a wolf pretending to be a human, teaching computer science at university.
I love @owashii with all my heart.
