In an effort to practice what I preach, I’ve started by own personal website and blog. As a budding professional in the budding field of digital history, I’ve spent a lot of time trying to convince others of the merits of strategically sharing content in digital formats. It’s about time I do it myself.
I’m embarking on a lot of changes in the near future as I leave my beloved job at Night Kitchen and begin teaching digital history, global history, and American material culture (surely among other things) at West Chester University. I will transition from helping others create and share meaningful digital content in accessible, intuitive ways and start opening the eyes of students to the world of digital history. I will also leave a firm at which information designers and developers do a lot of the tough stuff and I will have to figure out how to make things happen on my own. As such, this website is the next step in my own education.
Audience, I don’t yet know who you are. I will be pleased to meet you when I make your acquaintance. ’til then.
