Meet our Editors
I acquire books covering a range of subjects, from architecture/architectural history to urban design (including our Midcentury series), as well as projects surveying history, art, folklore, nature and the environment, music, and other areas of general interest throughout Virginia and the region for our new imprint, Rivanna Books. I received a BA in sociology and anthropology from Gettysburg College and an MA in anthropology from the University of Virginia, and my list reflects admittedly wide-ranging and eclectic interests. I started my career in scholarly reference at Oxford University Press, where I was a principal editor for the Buildings of the United States, a collaborative venture with the Society of Architectural Historians that has continued to this day, with the series and SAH Archipedia, the online encyclopedia of American architecture, now a principal part of UVA Press’s publishing program.
I have been working with the Rotunda Digital Imprint since 2013, after completing a MA in Digital Humanities from Kings College London, where I specialized in text encoding, linked data, and digital publishing. In addition to prepping materials coming into the American History Collection, I am the developer for SAH Archipedia and this UVA Press website. I look forward to helping Rotunda evolve in the future using modern web technologies and collaborating with other organizations in and outside the University to create supplementary resources and functionality to improve the use of digital resources in classrooms.
Prior to joining the Press, I worked in the cultural heritage sector (Historic Jamestowne) and for the Newspaper industry in various capacities, but largely advertising, web and graphic design. I hold BA in Literature from the University of Virginia, with additional graduate work in education.
