Hello! I’m Julien Baillie Fitzpatrick. I’m a programmer and artist living in Portland, OR. I’m non-binary, trans, queer, and use they/he pronouns! Before I was a programmer, I was a cartoonist and published several graphic novels (mostly under a different name that I am not going to tell you and no, you should not ask). I have a BFA in Cartooning from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, which is also the city where I was born and raised.
I’ve given talks all over the world at a variety of tech conferences on a variety of topics! Check out a few of my most recent ones on the Talks page!
I also organize a sporadic meetup in Portland, OR for people in tech who are members of underrepresented and marginalized genders! Get more information about that here.
