I’m a qualified information and library professional, with a strong interest in supporting fellow/new professionals. I’ve worked with the Special Libraries Association (SLA) in a number of roles, mainly serving on the board of the Europe Chapter. I’m currently a CILIP chartership mentor.

I’m a bit of a data geek and like to think about issues around interoperability, sustainability and standards.
