I am a recent graduate of Carleton University's Collaborative Master of Arts program in English, with a Specialization in the Digital Humanities. During the course of my studies I produced a thesis on the application of text encoding in eighteenth-century literature, and a digital critical edition covering a selection of material from the first four editions of Captain Charles Johnson's A General History of the Pyrates (1724-1726). Currently, I continue to pursue my work encoding this edition, and am exceptionally interested in the application of digital humanities tools in the advancement of academic research.
Additionally, I hold a Master's of Information from the University of Toronto's program in Library and Information Science and am currently looking for employment in an academic or special library, though I am also interested in potential opportunities in publishing. As a Librarian entering my professional career I believe my strengths lie in providing information literacy to students, and implementing collaborative technologies to further academic success. Book history and print culture are also fields which appeal to me, as digital tools have increased scholars' access to rare books and facilitate conservation and preservation.
My academic career began in the Bachelor of Arts program at the University of Guelph where I took a major in English and minor in anthropology. I am also a writer invested in the production of innovative literary art forms. In the last few years I have plied my hand in web design and enjoy combining technology, art and scholarship.
For more information continue perusing the various sections of this website, which I designed and produced using HTML and CSS without using templates or other software. This website is a work in progress and will continue to change over time.
