All About Miriam

Headshot of Mia smirking
This face is one of my special skills.

I’m an artist, activist, teacher, and web developer. As a co-founder of OddBird, Teacup Gorilla, and Grapefruit Lab I hope to create art & software that celebrate the queer complexity of human experience.

Over the last 15 years I’ve published novels & albums & technical manuals; created award-winning theater & open-source tools; cleaned my bedroom more than once; and presented at conferences around the world – but I’ve never been promoted at a job, done a whiteboard interview, or graduated from college.
