#introduction
hey fam! i'm a 29 y/o smol black queer, afab nb, super into "bread tube" (contrapoints, philosophy tube, three arrows, shaun, etc.) but I was radicalized over a decade ago :anarchistflagblack:

I'm currently teaching myself web development (pretty solid html/css skills, working on getting a good grasp of js and i've dabbled in web scraping with python). also into cyber/info/net security.

I also like languages, linguistics, travel, and learning new things in general.

this is my first toot I'm ever writing on mastodon and tbh I'm not sure that i know what I'm doing 🙃
