Hi! I’m a visual resources and collections management specialist currently pursuing an MSLIS at Pratt Institute. I’m passionate about art and music, and am currently involved in exploring new avenues for cultural institutions to share and exchange information.
I grew up in San Francisco and the New York Metropolitan area, and pursued an interdisciplinary degree in visual art and history/anthropology as an undergraduate at Carnegie Mellon University. After a brief stint living in Texas, I retuned to New York and spent a number of years working as an image editor and visual resources manager in a variety of industries before coming to work managing the digital image archive at the veteran McKee Gallery on Fifth Ave. Following the closure of McKee Gallery in 2015, I enrolled in Pratt to develop my skills managing digital cultural heritage collections. Now in my third semester, I’m focused in particular on exploring potential applications for linked open data and the semantic web in museums, galleries, and other institutions.
