hi. 🌱 i'm alex christie and i make things online. in my past life, i taught english literature and wrote about ethics, futurity, and posthumanism. i'm trained as an educator and researcher, so i'm eager to learn new things and teach others.
currently, i'm a lead software engineer working on developer experience and leading teams to build web sites, custom CMSs, and saas products at graveflex.
on the side, i work on and think about design systems, component libraries, and digital gardening. some projects i've worked on include if-sf, a theme generator and component library, an mdx library for next.js called next-mdx-relations (which i'm dogfooding on this site), and digital-garden.dev. i'm currently centralizing these tools into garden, and you can find me writing about the process both here (under 'garden') and on github.
