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 also create NFTs from deteriorating devices.
As 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 a CURATOR & SCHOLAR, I emphasize the importance of using emerging technologies to create access to archival records in both virtual and physical environments. I am an Adjunct Professor at the University of British Columbia (Canada) and an Instructor at the University of Victoria.
