Hi, I am Valerie Anita Aurora (formerly Henson), a writer, programmer, and feminist activist. I am principal consultant at Frame Shift Consulting, a diversity and inclusion consultancy. I am a co-founder and former Executive Director of the Ada Initiative, a non-profit to promote women in open technology and culture, and also a co-founder of Double Union, a feminist makerspace in San Francisco (notice a trend?). I was a Linux kernel developer specializing in file systems for about a decade. My Wikipedia bio is occasionally correct. I also write, speak, and generally make trouble.
