Work and Education
PhD Communication Studies (2016 – ), Concordia University

Upon graduation from the MLIS program I worked at the Canadian Heritage Information Network as an information analyst, researching standards for collections management. From 2011 to 2014 I worked as the e-artexte Project Manager, to launch the open access repository for visual arts publishing at Artexte. In 2012 I co-founded the MAT3RIAL collective alongside Antonia Hernández, Mél Hogan and Jacqueline Wallace, with whom I work as a freelance consultant and developer.
MAT3RIAL works collectively on digital projects with arts organizations, research groups and nonprofits. Some selected clients and projects include:
- the Rappels project, an archival database of theatrical productions in Quebec managed by Théâtres associés Inc;
- the Collective Threads project at the Textile Museum of Canada;
- the Directory of Artist-Run Centres and Collectives and ongoing web and consulting work for ARCA ( Artist-Run Centres and Collectives Conference);
- the Living Archives project of Page Rwanda and the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling.
