Sonya Austin is a single mom to a 9 year old boy named Luca. They have been unschooling for almost 2.5 years after choosing together to discontinue his schooling in 2010. They are both diagnosed with autism. They are from Minneapolis, just about an hour away from the conference site.
Luca really likes all aspects of video and arcade gaming including playing, history, marketing, design, and sociological impact.
Sonya likes to grow heirloom veggies, cook, sew, sing karaoke at her favorite local dive bar, study economics and human sexuality, and listen to top 40s music at deafening volumes.
They both love their pet kitten, Fio, and their pet husky, Frankie.
