AboutI am a developer in the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities (CDRH) and community manager for the Open Online Newspaper Initiative (Open ONI). I have helped create and support open source research tools such as Annotonia and sites including The Willa Cather Archive, Nebraska Newspapers, The Journals of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, Nebraska Authors, and the Salmon Pueblo Archeological Research Collection. I have overseen numerous server migrations and streamlined server software deployment, configuration, and administration.
EducationI received my Bachelor’s in Computer Science with minors in Mathematics and Business from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) in 2009. Before joining CDRH staff in 2015 I worked six years in Linux full stack web development and server administration. I am a free/libre open source software and cybersecurity enthusiast. I have been practicing Shotokan Ohshima Karate-do at UNL since 2007, have helped teach since receiving my black belt in 2012, serve as the student club advisor, and am a technical lead for the national Shotokan Karate of America web team. I have studied both Spanish and Japanese at UNL.
