DHPhilly is bringing together a Wow-plus group of creative and smart people. I look forward to meeting the makers behind the many interesting projects. My background is in graphic design, so I’ve been using digital design tools since the first Mac appeared. I am happy to contribute any aspect of my design expertise that may be useful. I am new to DH, and very excited about the work being done, and its opportunities. I am engaged in acquiring a palette of DH skills in order to contribute to the field.
I am available as a volunteer to assist with any aspect of the event. If help is needed, please contact me.
My current research project is on cartography, culture and identity in Northern Ontario, with an emphasis on recovering indigenous place names.
