I am a public historian based in Indianapolis, Indiana, and have been an active Wikimedian since 2012. With a B.S. degree in business and an M.A. in history from Indiana University, it should be no surprise that I am interested in U.S. history, especially Indiana and the Midwest. In addition, I have a background and interest in the history of the American West as well as French and British history.
An avid reader, I am a fan of well-written biographies, short stories, and historical fiction. I am also passionate about preserving historic places around the world.
My work-related interests are in digital learning collaborations and open source technology, so you will find me contributing to several WikiProjects, especially WP:GLAM/Indiana Historical Society.
Declaration of Interest
I am a public historian, curriculum developer, and currently the Indiana Historical Society’s editor of Wikipedia and research. As the IHS editor, Wikipedia and research, I support Wikipedia on a full-time basis by improving existing and creating new Wikipedia content as part of the WP:GLAM/Indiana Historical Society project. My GLAM/IHS tasks include reviewing, writing, and editing Wikipedia content; requesting digitization of IHS resources to assist Wikimedians with research; participating in Wikipedia and GLAM initiatives to encourage collaboration; hosting GLAM/IHS events; and tracking GLAM/IHS outcomes.
