User Experience Specialist

About

I am the Accessibility Specialist within the User Experience Department in the LIT Department. I head user experience initiatives related to accessibility and help facilitate development, delivery, and access to library resources and services to all library users. 

Background

I received Master's degrees in Library and Information Science (with a concentration in User Experience and digital libraries) and Fine Arts (with a concentration in sculpture and interactive media) from Pratt Institute. I also received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture/Intermedia from the pratt. I recently worked at St. Joseph's College Library (Brooklyn, NY), Brooklyn Botanic Garden (Brooklyn, NY) and Worry Free Labs (NY, NY). My most delicious work experience was spending a summer as a migrant farm worker on small organic farms in Italy with WWOOF Italia
