 I am riding the 2018 Pan-Mass Challenge, a 2-day, 190+ mile charity bike ride leading a charge to beat cancer. Last year, 100% of revenue raised by riders like me went directly to the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's commitment to finding a cure. You can join their cause by supporting my ride.

Who am I?

I'm the technology director for the three busy public libraries in Brookline, Massachusetts.

What do I do?

 advocate for libraries

 present about user experience, content strategy, and service design

 think about digital literacy, miscellaneous tech, and the unique anxieties of life in the 21st century

Why?

I grew up in the Carousel Capital of the World and cut my teeth on whipping up Angelfire pages at our Late Victorian farmhouse-turned-library. In the past, I've decorated cakes, built websites for hair salons, churned out online classes as an instructional technologist, and #SaturdayLibrarian'd hardcore at a private college in the general vicinity of Harvard Square.

I do lots of library stuff, but I also make websites, play in bands, cook extravagantly, have two cats, listen to tons of podcasts, and walk everywhere. I love trees, 37-key synthesizers, minimalist design, and serendipitous browsing.

How can we connect?

I'm on Twitter a lot.
