Records and Archives Professional with expertise in developing recordkeeping frameworks for managing and preserving audio-visual materials. I bring a creative and collaborative approach to my consulting work and program management. I have worked with international organizations, academic institutions, government agencies and individuals.

As an educator, I teach courses at the University of Victoria and the University British Columbia (Canada) on managing and preserving archival materials in museums; characteristics of audiovisual and non-textual archives; and emerging technologies for archival management and preservation.

As a scholar, I present and publish on the topic of digital archives, social media collections and cloud computing contracts. My dissertation, The Archival Trustworthiness of Digital Photography in Social Media Platforms (2016) reflects my interests in contemporary communications and the archival implications.

As an archivist, I have worked with the UN Climate Change secretariat to create “The UNFCCC Story” at the Richard Kinley Gallery in Bonn, Germany (2017); the Alaska State Library, Archives and Museum to develop their Digital Initiative Report (2011); and the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia to lead their digitization program (2006-11).
