My name is Daniel Hooker.
I have a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in English from the University of Wisconsin that I earned in 2008, where I developed an obsession with E.E. Cummings and helped put digital library collections on to the internet. From there I went to earn my MLIS from the School for Library, Archival and Information Studies at the University of British Columbia. That developed my interest in how people consume and interpret complex information on the web.
I’ve worked in communications for the eHealth Strategy Office at UBC, and the Center for Nanotechnology in Society at ASU. In both of those jobs I did my best to break WordPress and Drupal, write web and news content, coordinate events and generally help the faculty explain the work they do in a relatable and understandable way.
I like building websites and editing content, trying out new things, and making sure stuff works in the simplest way possible for its purpose. I’m energetic, and I do a lot of work for a variety of people.
