I work in the Stanford Media Preservation Lab (SMPL) as the Audio Digitization Specialist. My role is to take legacy analog audio items, which could be anything from lacquer discs to cassettes, and digitize them to make them accessible to people who don't happen to have a wax cylinder player readily available.

More about me
Before coming to Stanford University Libraries I was in a similar role at the Library of Congress. Prior to that I was an audio engineer in New York for about 11 years. I spent most of my time at the Magic Shop Recording Studio honing my recording and mixing skills and getting to work with artists such as David Bowie, Blondie, Foo Fighters, Blonde Redhead, and Norah Jones among others. Concurrently to this I was working in audio archiving, preservation, and restoration. I worked on collections including Phil Spector, Newport Jazz, Blondie, Les Paul, Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, and more. I have also done a bit of audio post production having mixed movies for both PBS and Showtime.
