I have been a member of LJ since 2000 and have been active on the Internet in various user fora and on newsgroups since 1989. Prior to that, I was actively involved in the University of Alaska's computer network user mentoring groups and clubs.
I have a diverse background, including technical editing, paralegal work, project management, terms as an officer in various non-profit groups, and work as an event coordinator. I care about a responsive social community on LiveJournal, and support the growth of social media as a wonderful way to bring people from different parts of the globe who share common interests together. I believe that communication, not just entertainment, is the heart of social media; what promotes free, thoughtful and respectful communication is good.
Thank you for your attention to this post. Please consider me as a candidate you will support for the LJ Advisory Board.
