This portfolio was created as means of highlighting some of my academic and creative achievements. These achievements were attained via experience in the field as well as through post-secondary education.

As a graduate of the University of Western Ontario's Master of Library and Information Science program, it is my hope to reach potential employers and demonstrate that I have much to contribute to the field of Library and Information Science. I also have a background in Education and Arts (e.g., theatre; English; history), meaning I can draw from rich combination of education and experience in order to fit a number of varying job roles.

Given my enthusiasm for technology, I felt it only fitting to publish my portfolio in an online format. By doing so, I not only showcase my technological abilities, but also allow myself to apply the skills and techniques I've learned to something that is an extension of my personality. Therefore, this portfolio is not only a testament of my knowledge and skills, it is also something I have committed to maintaining and contributing to regularly. 

Feel free to use the menu to the left in order to view my qualifications, experience, and sample work. Should there be any questions, comments, and/or reference requests, my information is listed in the Contact section.
