Elliott turned his passion for teaching and experience with open source software into the idea that eventually became trinket in the spring of 2013. With a background in information science, Elliott understands that open education needs both a strong community and a robust collection of open content. He focuses on trinket’s community, partnerships, and team.
Elliott received a B.A. with Highest Distinction from Duke University in 2005, where he researched art auctions, and a M.S.I.S. from UNC Chapel Hill in 2012. He currently teaches an open source programming course at UNC Chapel Hill as a teaching fellow. In his spare time, Elliott is a freelance philosopher.
