A selfie! I’m smiling at the camera, wearing a green dress, and sitting in front of a large amount of green foliage. It’s a sunny day and shining both on the side of my face and the plants.

Hi, I’m Alex (or Lexie).

I’m a software developer with a particular interest in digital preservation. I’m also a keen writer, crafter, theatre-goer, and occasional dancer.

I’ve put a bunch of things on the Internet, including:

When I’m not online, I can often be found with needle in hand, working on some cross-stitch or embroidery, or with shoes on feet, tapping away to a funky jazz number at a swing dance class. I have two left feet, but what I lack in skill I make up for in enthusiasm.

I’m queer, trans, and I loosely describe as a genderfluid shapeshifter (which may mean more to me than anyone else). My pronouns vary; on the web, either “they” or “she” are safe choices. 🏳️‍🌈

This site is a one-stop shop for everything I’ve put online – it’s either here, or linked to from here. If you’re new, you might want to start with my writing or my list of projects.

I hope you enjoy it.
