About me

I’m Stef. I’m a writer + graphic designer in Minnesota. I love my wife, my city, technical communication, rhetoric, Star Trek, Sherlock Holmes—and bees, of course. My wife and I are in the process of becoming foster/adoptive parents. We’re looking for an autistic child for our family, the one thing I think we’re missing.

I began this blog with Jesse and we wrote about the dynamics of our neurodiverse relationship. She was The Neurotypical Wife and many of my blog posts have a link to her thoughts on the same subject. Recently we learned that Jesse is not neurotypical and not particularly fond of blogging. So we’re not going to do that anymore. I no longer regularly update this blog but occasionally I do post things. I’ve left it here mostly to keep the resources I’ve posted online.

I use identity-first language. Here’s some information about that. I use terms specific to neurodiversity. You can learn more about that here. I also use image descriptions. For these reasons. 

If you find anything on this blog to be inaccessible or require a content warning that I have missed, please let me know. It is my sincere intent not to exclude anyone.

  1. Hi. I found your blog through Autism Women’s Network on FB, who linked to a post of yours. Your imagery was excellent, and helped me to use language that can explain my own shutdowns. ALSO. I absolutely adore the font that you’re using – could you tell me what it is, please?

  2. Hello! I am very much in love with your blog, it expresses all the things I wish to but struggle with sometimes, and it’s so lovely and reassuring to know there are others out there like me who think in the same ways I do. You’re just awesome and I am so grateful for this blog! Thank you for making it and writing on it!
    (Also, bees are the best. Bees are so good, lil friends just doing their jobs.)
