I’m Shel. I currently live in Western Massachusetts, but I’m moving to Philadelphia soon. I’m a grad student pursuing my MLIS part-time with a goal of being a reference/instruction librarian. I also write poetry and make other sortsa stuff. I like to help people access information and figure out what information has to say and make it easier to hear. Projects such as Sailing Rough Waters are representative of the kinds of projects I ideally would want to be working on all the time.

This website is where my various creations and projects live, or where I link to them if they don’t live here. Among my projects are poetry, self-help articles, comedy articles, code toys, weird music, and some old social essays.
