Dale and me, October 2011
Dale and me at our wedding, October 2011

Hi! My name is Coral Sheldon-Hess.

I’m a developer, a librarian, and an engineer. I am also an advocate for diversity/inclusion in the library and technology fields; for accessibility, user-centricity, and hospitality; and for collaboration between librarians and technologists.

If you have a project you’d like help with, or a speaking engagement you think I’d be suited for, please feel free to peruse my strengths and skills page, my LinkedIn profile, and/or my GitHub profile; and then to contact me.

I recently moved from Anchorage, AK, to Pittsburgh, PA, with my spouse, a chinchilla, two cockatiels, and two parakeets. In my spare time I like to make things (with code, crochet, writing, cross-stitch, and sometimes solder); play games (tabletop RPGs, Geocaching, and video and board games); learn about bird behavior; and read, mostly blog posts and fiction, a lot of it terrible. Unsurprisingly, I am also very into coffee and tea.
