I consult and teach about accessibility and usability in digital technologies. I have a formal background in information science and writing, as well as over fifteen years working in accessibility, web 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.
