Hi! I’m Jessi Hance.
My life used to be all about the Web. I was (and still am) fascinated with all that makes the Web tick. I have loved gathering, writing, organizing, structuring, and publishing content in myriad ways.
Now my life is about libraries and people. I’m learning what makes libraries tick. If you find out what makes people tick, please tell me ;)
I relocated in 2013 from Santa Cruz, California, to the Seattle (actually South King County) area. Some things I loved in Santa Cruz are here too: farmers’ markets, libraries, and great music.
If you’d like to know a little of my backstory, you can read my earliest blog posts:
