I am a solutions-oriented systems wrangler with a wide breadth of knowledge and experience. My primary areas of experience are on infrastructure design, systems operations and facilitating platforms and services dedicated to improving research outcomes for people at Research Institutions. Throughout my career and positions I've held, all of the various micro-cultures I've worked with have shaped my view and opinions. As a result I am now quite passionate about the history and cultural legacy of Libraries and Archives, attempting preservation and sharing of knowledge across time immemorial. Research, Data and Digital Preservation in the modern era is a special interest of mine, where I believe Research Libraries in particular must adapt and change to fill their historical role on our rapidly changing civilization.
