Hi! I’m Jessi Hance.
I’m fascinated with all that makes the Web tick. I love gathering, writing, organizing, structuring, and publishing content in myriad ways.
I recently relocated from Santa Cruz, California, to Seattle. Some things I loved in Santa Cruz are here in Seattle, too: farmers’ markets, libraries, and great music.
If you’d like to know a little of my backstory, you can read my earliest blog posts:
