about
    I’m a creative technologist at
    metaLAB & I’m currently finishing up a
    library degree. I like making things
    out of code, cardboard, paper, wood,
    or whatever else is around. I currently
    spend most of my time exploring
    north berkshire county, where I live as of
    september 2018. [+++]

Library Test Kitchen





LTK / 2016-2018
With metaLAB (at) Harvard, Jeff Goldenson
# teaching
Harvard GSD
Simmons SLIS



Library Test Kitchen began as a hybrid studio-seminar at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design in 2011. I took it as a graduate student and continued to co-teach the course. In the summer of 2016 and 2017, I led a new LTK instantiation for library and information science students at Simmons.

Students in the course designed interventions in response to common library challenges. We emphasized fast and frequent prototyping and testing.
