I'm probably a human person. Mostly I do accounting and taxes and all things financial. I'm happy to answer any questions you have about those things, but the answer is usually: it depends. Sometimes I herd cats and try to organize things.


I'm working on a knitted anatomical frog. It's going very slowly because I keep getting distracted by financial things. But I'll happily show you my (lack of) progress.
