Biography

Hi! I like a lot of things! I care about education (especially in tech), access (especially to moving images), the act of creation (especially on the web), and good archival practice (especially with digital formats).

I blog here sometimes!

In the past, I've worked for numerous organizations including but not limited to the New York Public Library, Bay Area Video Coalition, MediaArea, and the University of South Carolina in archivist, (technical) development, and digital repository specialist roles (or a combination of the above).

Working on and in open source is important to me. Fortunate to currently work on several open source projects: most notably QCTools and MediaConch. (Some of) my contributions can be found on Github.
