I am a public historian based in Indianapolis, Indiana, and have been an active Wikimedian since 2012. With undergraduate and graduate degrees in business and history from Indiana University, it should be no surprise that I am interested in U.S. history, especially Indiana and the Midwest. In addition, I have a background and interest in the history of the American West as well as French and British history.
An avid reader, I am a fan of well-written biographies, short stories, and historical fiction. I am also passionate about preserving historic places around the world.
My work-related interests are in digital learning collaborations and open source technology. I contribute to several WikiProjects, especially WP:GLAM/IHS.
Declaration of Interest
I am a public historian and currently the Indiana Historical Society’s editor of Wikipedia and research. I support Wikipedia on a full-time basis by improving existing and creating new content on English Wikipedia as part of the WP:GLAM/IHS project. My project tasks include reviewing, writing, and editing Wikipedia content; requesting digitization of IHS resources to assist Wikimedians with research; participating in Wikipedia and WP:GLAM initiatives to encourage collaboration; hosting GLAM/IHS events; and tracking GLAM/IHS outcomes.
