About Sri

Posted Saturday, October 29, 2022 by Sri.

Hiya! I’m a second-generation Taiwanese 🇹🇼 🇺🇸 American living in Southern New Hampshire. just about 40 miles north of Boston on the East Coast of the United States.

Where do I know you from?

You might know my work under my prior name "David Seah" on davidseah.com, where I have been writing since 2004 on topics such as personal development and productivity tool design.

Today I am primarily as a freelance interactive developer writing software for learning science researchers for classroom trials, using Javascript as our main technology base. Personally, I am working on ways to develop friendly communities where self-empowered positive-minded generous conscientious and kind people can share their interests, using my blog and productivity tools base as the platform.

Why the name change?

I’m transitioning from the name “Dave” to “Sri” (pronounced SREEE) as part of a public gender realignment as a non-binary/transgender person using "they/them" pronouns.

In person, I go by "Sri" because I've been using that name in MMORPGs for the 15 years and I'm quite fond of it. I'm spelling it online as "DSri" as a way of managing the transition from "Dave" over the past year. I started with "Dave.Sri" and then switched to "D.Sri" and "DSri" over a period of time. I'm going to retain the DSri spelling as it helps disambiguate Internet searching. Also, "D." and "Sri" are honorifics in some southeast Asian countries, so glomming them altogether helps avoid that association.
