Introduction

I support digital scholarship on the UW Tacoma campus, serve as administrator for the campus institutional repository, and collaborate with faculty as a subject liaison to Politics, Philosophy, and Public Affairs in SIAS. From December 2019 to May 2021, I served the Interim Director of the UW Tacoma Library and Associate Dean University Libraries.

My book Trying Home: The Rise and Fall of an Anarchist Colony on Puget Sound, published by Oregon State University Press, won the 2015 Washington State Book Award in the History/General Nonfiction Category. I also contribute to HistoryLink.org, the Washington State history encyclopedia. For information about my work as a writer, please visit my author profile.
