I am the Supervisor of Preservation Services at Warner Bros. Discovery. While earning a master’s degree in Library and Information Science from UCLA’s media archival studies program, I worked for the university’s Music Library and Library Special Collections, and served as a Library of Congress Junior Fellow in the Recorded Sound Section of the National Audio-Visual Conservation Centre. I have held roles at Los Angeles Public Library, the Autry Museum of the American West, Visual Communications, Walt Disney Imagineering Collections, UCLA Ethnomusicology Archive, and Disney Music Group. I serve on the Radio Preservation Task Force and the executive boards of the International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives (IASA) and the Association for Recorded Sound Collections (ARSC), and am co-founder of Basement Tapes Day, an annual event that provides the public with access to their home audio recordings.
