About Me
I'm M2 and I create things!

I'm on a mission to create a web for everyone by:
  • blending accessibility, inclusivity, and usability
  • into web experiences, digital media, and automated systems

"You are the only person with your exact blend of talent and skills."

I have a Bachelor's of Science in Anthropology – concentrated in Archaeology with a minor in Earth and Planetary Science – aka I have a piece of paper to dig up dead peoples' trash 😉. Anthropology is probably the most useful degree to learn about how people not only think, but how they interact with the world around them.

I'm self-taught in digital media, design strategy, development, and accessibility. I love open source, open science, and open knowledge.
