Stories change the world.

But we have to make the record to back up those stories.

I'm Stephen Goldmeier, and I'm currently the Organizational Systems Analyst at the Bronx Defenders. I previously worked as an appellate and postconviction attorney at the Office of the Ohio Public Defender. I've taught science and law, litigated cases, told stories, and analyzed data, with the hope of making the world a little bit better. I'm looking to keep doing that sort of thing.
