I applied to graduate school with plans to be an archivist. After hearing the phrase "democratizing data" from a local startup founder I fell in love with the possibilities the tech industry provided. I switched my focus to digital data management. My first job as a Catalog Engineer allowed me to apply my traditional librarian skills to data problems. Currently, I'm the Lead Data Analyst at data.world where I work with open data daily. I reach out to data custodians around the country, from cities to organizations, to help them further distribute their data. Working with different community members is elucidating. It has inspired me to learn more about how to further facilitate data sharing.
