Jameson Hampton is an artist who turned into a programmer after one too many animation classes that were computer science classes in disguise. They love writing code because they love solving puzzles. They’re a professional plant-liker and software engineer for Agrilyst. They also speak at conferences, particularly about transgender advocacy and engineering ethics. For me, check out their blog at jameybash.com!
Jamey is passionate about both making zines and reading zines. They are the resident zine librarian at Sugar City Arts Collaborative.
Jamey’s greatest wish is that they were immortal so they’d have time to visit every coffee shop in the world. They spend their free time thinking about Star Wars, being a world ranked scavenger hunter, and going out into the woods to set sculptures on fire.
