About Ash

Ash is an aggressively enthusiastic creator-of-things in Northern California.He has realized in recent years that one of his greatest strengths is that he never learns the how something is supposed to be done before he tries it himself. He does a lot of things wrong, & one of the most freeing creative choices he's ever made was deciding not to care.He's queer & autistic, and didn't understand till recently how much of what he makes & how he makes it are informed by that fact. He also lives with a collection of physical & mental diagnoses that largely get in the way, but have, at least, been named.Above all, he is driven to tell the Story, to connect the mythic to the modern, and to be visible such that others from Elsewhere know they aren't alone.He has been writing since forever, and professionally for over a decade. Now, he has the luxury of making creative work without the need to generate income from it, and he's found he's happiest as a hobby creator.He thrives on collaborative work, collective world-building, and connecting with creators of as many backgrounds and outlooks as he can.Contact Ash
