So I'm back from Bronycon 2017, and I made a cute little website for the programming panel that lists my pony-related things:

I wasn't very active on the writing track this year, but maybe next year!

My Little Pony: Markov Chains are Magic! · 6:48am Feb 5th, 2016

If you've been paying attention to the /r/mylittlepony subreddit, you probably already know about this, but I made a random episode generator using markov chains. It originated in the bot I wrote for the /r/mylittlepony discord chat, but I wanted to make a client-side version so people can generate random nonsense to their heart's content. Have fun!

Them's Fightin Herds · 5:56pm Sep 24th, 2015

The dev team behind Fighting Is Magic, Mane6, have begun crowdfunding their new game, Them's Fightin' Herds. The world and characters are entirely designed by Lauren Faust herself, the lady who created My Little Pony. They recently added a ton of new high-level tiers with great bonuses, like getting your own OC in the game's background. While I don't normally play fighting style games, I really want to see this one succeed

I'm going to Equestria LA, where I'll be hosting a panel called The Making of Pony Clicker at 11:30 AM on Sunday!

Birthday! · 11:21am Jun 23rd, 2015

It's my birthday today. I am officially 25 years old. Many years ago, I thought I'd have a substantially different life than the one I have right now. This seems to happen to a lot of people. I hadn't planned to get completely obsessed with My Little Pony or to write a stupid knockoff of Cookie Clicker that got explosively popular. I never planned on working at Microsoft. I did, however, plan to eventually quit, which is why I only have to drag myself to work for another week before I am

MLP-MSP And SPACE UNICORNS · 8:43am Jun 9th, 2015

I'm going to be at MLP-MSP with Ruirik and Solidfire this weekend! I will be wearing my cloud hop badge, which is identical to my avatar, so I should be pretty easy to find. I'm also going to be helping Ruirik with his table in the vendor hall, so you might find me in there if I'm not wandering around the convention.

Also, space unicorns.

Pony Clicker · 9:38am May 15th, 2015

As most people here have probably already discovered, I unleashed Pony Clicker upon the world yesterday. A lot of people have been asking where to file bugs, and the answer is on GitHub. Also, if you want to yell at me for completely wasting hours of your time, you can do that here :trollestia:

If you've been paying attention to Everfree Northwest, you may have noticed that I was announced as an official community guest! I don't know what panels I'll be on yet, only that they will be some of the writing ones.

The results are in, and I am honored to have won 3rd place in the EFNW 2015 Writing Contest, with Bastion!

BABScon! · 7:07am Apr 2nd, 2015

I'm going to be at BABScon this weekend! If you are at BABScon and for some reason want to talk to me, I will be wearing bunny ears and this badge, which should make it pretty easy to find me. I'll likely be either at a writing panel or stalking Skywriter. I'll also be hanging out with Ambris, if any of you are familiar with his
