With over three years of library experience at the Buffalo & Erie County Library System under his belt, Jordan joined the TechKnow Lab team in March of 2012.  Of the many free courses offered, teaching patrons the wonders of the web in Internet Basics remains his favorite, but helping people with their eReaders is always a pleasure.  When he's not spreading the good word of the digital age to willing listeners, he's busy watching, reading and writing about cinema.

Micha joined TechKnow Lab in January of 2019. She had her first exposure to programming and web-design while studying to be a librarian at McGill University in Montreal and has been interested in technology and it’s applications in our lives ever since. She is passionate about traveling and learning firsthand about different cultures. It may be no surprise that ancestry is her favorite class to teach.
