My first love is research and the digging and reporting of what I have found. I’ve won awards for my writing and have a number of publications to my name. They reflect my diverse yet converging interests!
In this profession, it goes without saying that emerging technologies, digital collections, cloud-based services and mobility are happening now. I have immersed myself in these technologies by actively using, teaching and exploring these diverse media.
I believe it is important to give back. I have participated in professional organizations by chairing committees, contributing on conference panels and attending and organizing conferences.
Based in Toronto, Canada, I have a MLIS which is nicely matched with a BSc and a BA.
When not researching, I like to run – long distances if possible – and have completed the Boston Marathon (2010) and many half, and other marathons.
