Hi, I’m Coral Sheldon-Hess.

This is me ➡

I’m a librarian and a maker, with a background in electrical and computer engineering. Also, clearly, I’m into birds. In my spare time I enjoy making/crafting, brewing up herbal remedies, reading voraciously, and volunteering at the local feminist makerspace. In both work and volunteer pursuits, I pride myself on writing good documentation and making meetings more productive. (My superpower is calling the question—getting a group to recognize when discussion time is over, and a decision needs to be made.)

I live in Pittsburgh, PA, with my partner, a chinchilla, two cockatiels, and two parakeets.

I keep an up-to-date copy of my CV in GitHub, if you would like more information about my past and present professional pursuits. If you would like me to teach a workshop, speak at your event, make you an herbal salve or something out of chainmail, or help you with your website, please feel free to contact me.

⬅ This is also me.
