Librarian. Humanist. I cultivate critical digital creators and users by emboldening people to incorporate critique into their digital making, to observe intently, and to articulate scholarly arguments in a necessarily digital medium.
As the Digital Initiatives Librarian at Wake Forest’s Z. Smith Reynolds Library, I guide content strategy for the library’s digital collections and partner with members of the campus community to create digitally inflected research and pedagogy. I initiate, lead, and contribute to cross-organizational teams building out infrastructure and managing process for digital collections development and strategy; digital preservation strategy; and digital humanities projects.
In 2013 I graduated from the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Master of Science in Information Science degree. I see myself not only as a librarian, but also a humanist whose discipline of information science is concerned with how people interpret and represent the natural and cultural world with which they interact.
