About

An experienced Software Product Manager with a background of both marketing and software development in large, small and startup environments. I am a practicing arhaeologist and my research is focused on infant burial practices and the provenance of digital records, a particularly pressing problem in archaeology which is the poor relation with respect to funding. I also specialise in photographing human remains: a key driver in addressing the issues of cataloguing, digital preservation and provenance.
