Professional activities 

I've worked at Stanford for over ten years, processing collections for Manuscripts, University Archives and the Archive of Recorded Sound. My background is in media, 20th century history, popular culture, Californiana, radicalism, art, and especially music. A long time ago I catalogued sound recordings and scores, and I still have more than a little bit of cataloger in me.

More about me 

When I’m not at work I’m usually eating, playing records, or riding my bicycle. I'm addicted to nature, and hike and camp as frequently as possible. I also collect photographs, magazines and ephemera and try to share it.
