I consult and teach in issues around accessibility and usability, in traditional and emerging technologies. I have a formal background in information science and writing, as well as over fifteen years working in development, user experience design, and information architecture.
I think it's crucial to think about the web as our primary platform for communication, innovation, expression, and inclusion.
I live in Seattle, WA, and work at Shopify.
