I studied literature and information at the University of Wisconsin—Madison. Now I'm a digital scholarship librarian in Raynor Memorial Libraries at Marquette University, where I'm part of the Digital Scholarship Lab. I do poetry, translation, digital humanities, public digital scholarship, and information literacy.
My current creative research project in development is a digital collage project called AZTALAN about the city on the Crawfish River. My ongoing creative research project is a digital documentary poetry project called MOUNDS. The project also includes public digital scholarship at The Sundial and Edge Effects. It's about medieval studies and white settler colonialism.
For three years I was a research assistant at the digital humanities platform project Digital Mappa at the Center for the History of Print and Digital Culture at UW. For one year I was a teaching assistant and instructor in the English 100 program in the English department on campus. I was also involved in the Data Carpentry workshop group at the Data Science Hub on campus.
