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

Respect names.
Respect people.


PS. Cis is not a slur. You are not being oppressed for being cis.
