Austen Crowder

Chicago, Illinois, United States

Writer, Business Analyst, Techie, Activst, Gamer. I collect eccentricities like burrs on socks and always, always love new experiences. Learning is my thing: you name it, I've either learned a bit about it or will hit the books on the subject once we get done talking.

By trade I'm in the business of talking to folks, identifying their problems, and fixing them with computer programs. I also write things about subjects I love: games, fiction, politics. I've published a few books and short story collections that are available on and you can find a swath of my blogging work on various niche blogs on the internet.

Available for freelance editing/writing, diversity consulting, LGBTQ training, and IT business consulting.
