Hello! I’m Sushi, a writer and geek of many trades. Born and raised in northwest Georgia, I escaped to Atlanta for college and never looked back. If you’re here from National Novel Writing Month, you may know me as sushimustwrite, that person with the ridiculous icon, or the person behind the NaNoWriMo wiki.
I graduated from a small liberal arts college in Georgia with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and French. There I took every math class I could get my hands on (and a couple that I made up), squeezed in a French major for giggles my last year, and won NaNoWriMo and Script Frenzy every year. Since then I’ve been getting into shenanigans.
For the curious: The name Sushi comes from my real name and a couple of middle school friends many years ago. They have no idea what kind of monster they created.
My topics of interest vary widely but include books, writing, National Novel Writing Month, math, science, tea, open source software, online communities, Linux, programming, data portability, music, education, and whatever’s on my mind at the moment.
When I’m not geeking out about things and pretending to be funny on the Internet, I work on writing, content, social media, and other very exciting things. Want to work together on a writing, online community, or social media project, or need a person of many trades? Let’s talk.
Things I Made
I founded and currently run Wikiwrimo, the unofficial but still awesome wiki for National Novel Writing Month.

Here’s a picture of all my paper journals as of August 2014. Turns out I can fill up a lot of notebooks.
