I’m a librarian living in Burlington, Ontario. I’m currently a councillor-at-large with the Ontario Library and Information Technology Association (OLITA). In 2011 I co-organized and hosted TEDxLibrariansTO, the very first TEDx event specifically for librarians and information professionals, around the theme Librarians as Thought Leaders. The event received mentions on Boing Boing, the New York Times Book Bench, Poets & Writers and various professional websites. I am also the founder of the website and blog, Maker Librarian. My interests include digital justice, hacker/maker culture and emerging technologies and I’ve presented on these topics at conferences in the US and Canada.
