I help build tech tools so others can flourish. I live at the nexus of people finding, accessing, and acquiring language resources and the organization and stewardship of language resources. Working with system users and supporting communities beyond specific socio-technical systems requires a broad technical knowledge and a sensitivity to social contexts. I seek out the big picture and the minority language user. I have a passion for lowering technical, social, and legal barriers to sustainable self-managed cultural identity.
