Summary:  My professional focus is digital asset management and content management. I apply cataloging and information management skills to organize multimedia assets and metadata.

I have experience with information management, database design, training and documentation. After earning a Masters degree in Library and Information Science, I began my career with academic and medical library cataloging. I then moved into digital content creation and management, first in an academic setting and then in a variety of corporate arenas including telecommunications and engineering.

For over ten years I worked in the media industry (newspaper content syndication, magazine publishing, video/TV). It was in that arena that I expanded my skills in DAM system design and implementation, working on programming teams to build two systems that included asset management and custom search capability.

While I have a strong technical background, my focus is always on customer service, not technology for its own sake. I see my role as a bridge between information and the people who need it.
