Currently, I work as a civil-rights attorney at TRE Legal Practice, a small California-based law firm focused on the rights of disabled people to access society. I am also an adjunct instructor of U.S. history at a local community college. I continue to do technical work too, primarily in support of my legal practice.
My doctoral research looked at the impact of technological changes on American conceptions of privacy (including the home, search & seizure, contraception, and liberty more generally). My (unfinished) PhD dissertation was to be called “What will become of the domestic hearth?”: Impacts of Technology on the Development of Privacy Law in the United States, ca. 1792-1972.
Earlier in my career, I worked in web development and systems administration in the Arnold Library at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
