I am a researcher and software developer with two decades of experience bridging the worlds of libraries and archives with the World Wide Web. I have worked in academia, startups, corporations and government. I work best in agile, highly collaborative teams. I work best as a member of agile, highly collaborative teams that focus on furthering social justice work through community building, knowledge sharing and attention to sustainability. In my research I am particularly interested in the medial forms of archives, memory and the sociotechnical practices that support them.
