amanda etchesHi, my name is Amanda and this is my website.

I am a librarian, designer, tea drinker, reader, doodler, traveler, runner, writer, and taker of pictures.

I’ve been blogging since 2001, and I’m not telling you that because I think it gives me some sort of cred (I’ve always been such an irregular blogger that I totally have zero cred). I’m telling you that because this site is a rather formless amalgam of its former iterations, which is why you’ll find content here dating back to 2002, from my various personal and professional blogs. Please excuse the mess.

Lately the content around here has been light on the professional stuff (I still love you, ux/librarian friends!) and heavy on the personal stuff — mostly what I’m reading and drawing and the stuff that’s influencing and inspiring my creativity.

Thanks for stopping by!
