About me

If this were the Lord of the Rings Software Engineering would be my great eagle whisking me off to safety after falling from Barad Dûr. I'm not claiming to be saving the world, but if I were to compare the difficulty levels of the two I believe they would be pretty on par. I would also argue that this experience has forged friendships that rival that of Sam and Frodo's.

Coming from a library background has given me an appreciation not only for fantasy, but also for privacy and accessibility. Two fields that I would like to continue exploring in a software engineering capacity.
