I am a professional archivist, artist and scholar creating original research and art projects focused on historical photography, visual collections, and other subjects related to archives and archival practice.
My professional interests include promoting the use of primary sources in education, advocating for equitable access to historical materials through fair use, and employing historical research, art, and visual culture in nontraditional ways. See select projects on the Home page, as well as the Goods and Services page for examples of my recent work with wood. Contact me to commission a human or animal portrait, memento, or custom design.
I live with a spinal cord injury as a result of being hit by a drunk driver in 2005. Since 2006 my home has been a customized, wheelchair-accessible 1975 Airstream Sovereign of the Road, remodeled by Oswaldo Gonzalez and Sebastian Castro.
As a trained welder since 1999, I also work to promote the visibility of women in the trades, and for making trades more open to talented female workers.
