I’m a queer trans lady, Erin Jr.’s mama, and Eryn’s girlfriend. I live in San Francisco, which sits on the unceded ancestral homeland of the Ramaytush Ohlone peoples.

I grew up in the Boston area, went to college in Indiana, and spent a decade in San Diego before moving to the Bay Area.

I’m on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and many of the other usual social media sites.


I have fifteen years experience in various standards bodies related to web technology, most notably at the W3C and the WHATWG. These days, I’m the Standards Lead for the WebKit team at Apple. At the W3C, I sit on the AC and the TAG, chair the HTML WG and the Privacy CG, and edit a number of documents, including the Security and Privacy Questionnaire and the Storage Access API.

I’m on GitHub, of course.
