I live in Vancouver, and work as a librarian most of the time and a copy editor some of the time. My areas of interest include digital literacy, user engagement, information policy and community outreach. I love well made books of all kinds, but especially art books. I also like good coffee, handmade things, and easy bike rides on quiet streets. I don't mind rainy winters.

This website is a way for me to organize things.

You can also find me on Pinterest and Instagram.
