Hi, I'm Mackenzie, but my friends have called me Maco (first syllable is like the computer) since I was 10.

For my dayjob, I'm a software engineer. I really enjoy working on user-facing applications. When I'm not at work, I enjoy living history, gardening, and crafts.

In college, I spent a lot of time working on Free Software. In particular, I was a developer on Ubuntu, though I use a mix of Kubuntu and OS X now.

I'm into languages. I studied Spanish for 10 years, Japanese for four, and Russian for one, but I'm pretty out of practice with them. In college, I picked up some American Sign Language enough to converse, though I often revert to PSE. I'm currently studying Italian.
