Stewarding audio/video/film collections @ the University of Washington Libraries in Seattle.


Hi. Welcome to my guide. See below for an overview of what I do at UW. Send me an email if you think I can help you:  

  • I'm curator at the Ethnomusicology Archives. The Archives, which has been col­lecting unique ethnographic music recordings since the early 1960s, is one of the largest academic archives of its kind. Its holdings of over 50,000 recordings and films document international, national, and regional music traditions. The Archives is also home to the Seattle Sounds Archives Project (SSAP), a sub-archive of local music that includes the Kearney Barton, Crocodile Cafe, and 206 Hip Hop collections. 
  • As affiliate faculty in the Ethnomusicology and Honors Program, I facilitate the critical exploration of musics and sounds across disciplinary boundaries. You can learn more about the courses I offer here
