An Archivist with expertise in developing recordkeeping frameworks for managing and preserving collections with significant legal, cultural and historical value. I bring a creative and collaborative approach to every situation. I have worked with international organizations, academic institutions, government agencies, not-for-profit and family estates.

As an educator, I teach courses at the University of Victoria and the University of British Columbia (Canada) on managing and preserving archives and collections in various institutional and organizational settings; on facilitating community engagement and outreach services; and using emerging technologies for accessing cultural heritage collections.

As an artist, I explore the nature of memory through photography. More recently I create artifacts that reflect on the relationship between people and computer programs. I transform ephemeral digital expressions into permanent keepsakes. I am represented in Vancouver by Monica Reyes Gallery
