Biography

Prior to joining Pratt in 2017 I worked as a reference & instruction librarian at academic and museum libraries in Chicago and New York City. My research intersects the study of small press and ephemeral artist publications with critical librarianship. I am co-creator of the open access discovery tool Avalanche Magazine Index , and have published articles in Art Documentation, Art Libraries Journal, and Serials Review.
