In light of the influx of new arrivals, I'll do a fresh #introduction: I'm Getty (he/him) and I'm a 30-something living in the Pacific Northwest. Programmer by trade and sometimes hobby, linguist by academic background, also into writing, art, crafts, food, cocktails, and abysmally bad puns. (Plus very strong left-leaning politics, but I usually keep politics off my social media these days.) I also was aisamanra on Twitter, and I'm aysamanra on Cohost.
Also, the username—aysámanra—is "dreamer" in an old conlang of mine. (I don't do conlang stuff much any more, but it's an old hobby that's still dear to me.)
