Short Version

I’m Rachael Ludwick. I currently live in Seattle, Washington, USA with my partner, baby and cats. I work at Glowforge as as software developer. We’re making an awesome product involving LASERS and you should check it out.

I also am the committeewoman from the 37th Legislative District Democrats to the King County Democrats Central Committee. That means I’m always on the look out to engage people in politics and government and attend a lot of political events. If you’re looking to get involved, come talk to me!

But, disclaimer: this is a personal web site and nothing here or elsewhere on the web represents my employer or organizations I volunteer or work with.

Comment Policy

I no longer have comments. My old site before migrating to WordPress had comments using Disqus on many older posts. They are gone (but somewhere on Disqus’ site). I don’t believe in having comments without moderation and I don’t have time to moderate. But if you’re interested in my general approach to comments on a personal website, see how John Scalzi moderates his blog. If you want to know my opinion about comments on news, etc. websites, see Comments suck right? So why do you have them?.


Email is the easiest. If you want to speak on an encrypted channel, I’m on Signal and WhatsApp (email or twitter for phone). I sometimes post pictures on Flickr or Instagram as well. I sometimes also post on a separate tumblr.
