This article is about Jonathan Coulton's administrative assistant. For the fictional minion Scarface, see Skullcrusher Mountain.

Scarface is the pseudonym of an assistant employed by Jonathan Coulton. Scarface's duties include replying to e-mail sent to Coulton, particularly fan mail and working the merchandise table for local shows. Coulton has not disclosed whether Scarface has other responsibilities.

On April 21, 2008, Coulton officially announced that he had hired Scarface. In the days before this announcement, a number of people had already reported receiving replies signed "Scarface".

Scarface made her first public appearance at the June 21st, 2008 New York City show.

The pseudonym "Scarface" comes from the name of the narrator's assistant in Coulton's song Skullcrusher Mountain. Neither of these Scarfaces appears to have any connection to the many real and fictional people given that nickname, including the title character of the 1983 Al Pacino film.

Scarface's real name begins with an M. That is all. (Her publicist's name begins with an upside down M. Also known as a W.)
