Areas of expertise
I was a librarian for 8 years in a small, primarily undergraduate university setting, where I was involved in reference, instruction, outreach, and collections, but developed expertise primarily in the areas of copyright and scholarly communication.

I now work at a library association, juggling many projects, participating in some in a more administrative role and in others in a more direct, contributing role. Although I am a member of a team that collaborates closely, my work is currently done remotely (telecommuting).

Prior to becoming a librarian, I worked in film and TV production and at various Toronto film festivals.
