My experience as an artist and researcher has fostered a lifelong interest in historic photographs and the personal stories they reveal. As a visual media archivist and preservation specialist my goal is to increase the public’s exposure to the valuable information stored in archives and special collections by increasing awareness, enabling access, and preserving archival material for future users.

I am currently working as a visual materials archivist at Yale University’s Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library after earning a Master of Science in Information degree from the University of Michigan School of Information. My archival work focuses on processing and cataloging visual materials collections as well as historic photograph preservation.
