Hi there! I'm Shelby.

I'm a writer and civic technologist currently based in New York City. I have a background in software development and API design and strategy across a number of domains. Throughout my career I have focused on open data, open standards, civic/social/public tech, and civic hacktivism.

These days I spend most of my time on research I find interesting or impactful, contributing to open source or open standards projects, and writing about the intersection of technology, society, and public infrastructure. You can find me on Twitter as @switzerly or on Github as switzersc.
