About Shannon

I’m Shannon Smith, the founder of Café Noir Design Inc., a boutique Montreal web design company specializing in bilingual or multilingual web development. I currently work for as a platform specialist for a large enterprise content platform provider.

This is my blog where I talk about making the web a better place.

I support things like making the web accessible for everyone, using open source software, helping organizations find greener more sustainable ways to operate through online technology and helping non-profits with online community organizing. I also talk about women and tech.

I’m also a poet, hiker, and mother of four.
