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.

you can find me on github, twitter, and polywork.
