Something about me
Jag heter Nikki.
a catagoraphobe who hates pigeonholes,
and will run the other way if you try to tell
me who I am
I’ve worked in web development & technology for 20+ years; with experience in IT help desk, technical training, and primarily web development, management, and coding.
I’m a “late-DX” autistic+ADHDer with misophonia, and synesthesia. (My synesthesia tends to revolve around sound, though I’ve also got some crazy things going on with color.)
I’ve always had a thing for huge sunglasses, photography, flâneur-ing, lots of color, and learning languages. My latest obsessions include Swedish (Jag är mig svenska!), graphic design, painting all the rooms in my house green, and Swedish sitcoms. I curse a lot, and I’d really love to get some sleep.
I started my first blog in 2002, under the tagline, “I don’t know why I’m telling you any of this.” I was living in Philadelphia and started the blog to document my impending move to Prague, Czech Republic, where I would wind up staying for almost exactly 3 years. I’ve bounced through at least 10 urls until finally settling on writing here, under my own name.
