I'm a staff member at the Boise State University Albertsons Library, Special Collections and Archives. I make digital collections for the library's historic photo collection: digital.boisestate.edu.

I'm in the final semester (hopefully) of a Masters of Arts in History program at Boise State. Besides my thesis, my favorite project while in the program was creating a AR content layer for "Wikitude." We made georeferenced YouTube videos about 6 influential people buried at the Morris Hill Cemetery. The videos hover over their tomb stones. http://www.wikitude.com/w/ozxspep/

I am also a grant contractor for an oral history project for a local neighborhood. We're collecting interviews with people that lived in the neighborhood back in the 30s, 40s and 50s. I hope to geo-reference clips and make them available on a website or app.
