My career has traced converging threads that first appeared in childhood, when I spent most of my free time reading books and making zines, learning computer programming and building databases. I have worked in a variety of roles in data management, web development, and digital humanities, always advocating for scientifically rigorous perspectives in the arts and humanities and humane approaches to computing and technology. I am committed to the principles of free and open source software, and in the past have helped lead the Melbourne chapter of LinuxChix and Linux Users of Victoria. In 2020 I will begin studying Information Management at RMIT University and am open to new career directions in archives, libraries, or digital humanities.
