What fannish things do you like to do?

I’m mostly a reader. I always loved stories and books, so reading fic and sharing recommendations was a natural extension of that, and it’s still my favorite way to interact with fandom. I also enjoy good meta, vids, and art, and I will try my hand at writing from time to time. These days I can also be found yelling about hockey games or singing Hamilton out of tune.

What’s the most fun thing to you about volunteering for the OTW?

For me, the best part is the community. The OTW volunteers are an amazing and welcoming group, and it’s really fun to work alongside them. We have people from all over the world and from a lot of different parts of fandom, so you can always find someone to share a moment (or ten) about your latest fandom obsession. Joining the OTW made me realize how much has to happen behind the scenes and how many people are involved in keeping the sites up and our projects growing. The feeling of accomplishment from keeping everything running despite all our challenges is even more special because we get to share it with really cool people.
