I’m Avery Wiscomb, armchair philosopher, LEGO enthusiast, media hunter, and occasional critic. I’m originally from Orcas Island, Washington, but moved east to study first at St. John’s College, Maryland, then at Carnegie Mellon University. I taught college, worked as a writing consultant for researchers, and wrote for a backend technology company in New York City, before returning to Pittsburgh to complete my Ph.D. in English. Since then, my life has been dedicated to books and computers, and big ideas about what they mean to each other and why that matters.

The “About” page describes what I do for work. The “Projects” page describes some of what I’m working on.
