Greetings. You're reading the digitized words left behind by the person legally known as Zoe Landon, and otherwise known as Hupfen, and probably known by other names that she's not supposed to be aware of. That's her in that picture there!
Zoe is paid to write web software, and not paid to write stories or music, but she does those too. At the moment, she's a lapsed podcaster, journalist, audio engineer, and recipe inventor, but at any moment she could start doing any of those things again, surprising the general public and also herself.
She was the drummer in The Mighty Missoula but left that band to go to grad school or have a psychological episode depending on your interpretation of her mental state. She now plays drums for Pinch Runner, which has substantially less website to link to.

If for some reason you wish to get in contact with me, then I can only apologize. The footer below has several means by which to contact me, each of which has a variable chance of actually reaching my attention. Those variables change on a constant basis, so no, I cannot guarantee that I will respond to any given communication. I'm very bad about that.
