Pali

Pali Endi and Nick Woolsey in SingaporeShe helps with stuff, and also things, but she specializes in Pali-ization. If you read something from Playpoi chances are it's her or Nick who wrote it. 

Pali's from Indianapolis and was often on location with us from '08 to '10. Now she calls Boulder home, and reportedly is lovin' it.

She's the creator of Spin to This as well as a major ally in projects like Flow Arts Network and Flow Maps, and is at the front lines of flow arts social networking, working to make it highly connective, usable, and supportive of creative play.
