princess is a neotenic salamander living in a swamp castle. she is one half of girl software and she makes games, videos, music, writing, etc.

her work has been exhibited at parties, festivals, conventions, museums, art galleries, in several countries, in a macy's, at the bar association, in the lobby of a gambling company one time, and in space! (no, not in space.)
