I am a dedicated advocate of open publishing practices in education and academia. I have a particular interest in how technology and infrastructure can support and develop these practices, and enjoy finding practical ways to solve big picture problems. I consider advancing open access to knowledge and information to be fundamentally a question of social justice, and a pathway to building a more equitable future globally.
Currently, I am the Assistant Director of the Rebus Foundation, a Montreal-based non-profit dedicated to reimagining the publishing ecosystem on open principles. In my work with the Foundation, I manage Rebus Ink, a project creating an open source workflow tool for arts, humanities and social science researchers. Previously, I developed our open textbook initiative, the Rebus Community, and was the product manager at Pressbooks, an open book publishing platform focused on open textbook creation.
I completed a Master of Publishing from Simon Fraser University in 2017, and hold a Bachelor of Communication Studies (Honours) from the Auckland University of Technology.
