I’m Shelley. I have an MLIS in Digital Libraries and Metadata, and an MA in English Literature. I have an almost-complete PhD thesis sitting on a shelf somewhere collecting dust, which I think I may turn into a book instead.
I’m a COO at a fantastic company where I help solve problems, build better micetraps, and collaborate with like-minded individuals from my home in Wellington, New Zealand.
I have taught, presented, tutored, work-shopped, and lectured. My brain is always on, and I am always thinking. I love to help fix things. My personal motto is to leave something better than when I found it. So far, I have.
I knit, freedive, walk, cook, observe, and chronicle my life here; all the while tweeting about the inane as @shell4uw or snapping photos on instagram as @m4naia. I can also be found at Goodreads and Pinterest.
