I am currently Manager of Digital Asset Systems at the Dallas Museum of Art. My responsibilities include preserving the digital master files of all museum photography, audio, and video, digitizing materials from archives, acquiring or scanning contextual images for exhibition displays and publications, and preparing data and resource contributions to external organizations such ARTstor and Google Art Project. I also develop workflows and guidelines and create documentation for the department.
In 2013, I completed a Master of Library Science from Texas Woman’s University, Denton, Texas. I also hold a Master of Art Education with Museum Certification from the University of North Texas, Denton and a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Studio Art from the University of Texas at Austin. I am K-12 Art Texas teaching certified, which I earned as a result of a post baccalaureate program at the University of Texas at Tyler, followed by teaching art at John Tyler High School.
Prior to my current position, I was the Director of Adult & Public Programs at the Trammell & Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art. I developed educational materials relevant to the collection, special exhibitions, and cultural, art-making practices, worked with docents, and planned lecture programs and annual festivals. The move to the Dallas Museum of Art was a result of my growing interest in information management and the development of digital assets for access and educational purposes.
