I am currently part-time Archivist at Coventry University. This includes sorting and cataloguing the papers of engineer, car manufacturer and inventor Frederick Lanchester. An online website and catalogue with digital images is available, and an exhibition space highlighting the work of Lanchester is open on the 2nd floor of the University Library (appropriately named the Frederick Lanchester building). Coventry University holds other collections which are also available online.

I am also one of the Archives team at Rugby School (term-time only), which involves preparations for a move from the school's Temple Reading Room Library to temporary premises and then to a new home elsewhere on the school campus.

Before these jobs I worked as Project Archivist at Warwickshire County Record Office on the Donald Healey Motor Company, and Willans Works (Rugby) collections.

In 2012 and 2013 I worked on the
REP100 project, part of Birmingham Repertory Theatre's 100th anniversary celebrations. I sorted and catalogued the Rep's archives held by at the Library of Birmingham.

Jobs in 2011 included work at The Children's Society Records & Archive Centre to update its
Hidden Lives Revealed website, and to catalogue and appraise material. I also reviewed archive policies at The Royal College of General Practitioners.

From 2007 to 2009 I catalogued the papers of the cartoonist Carl Giles as part of a digitisation project for the
British Cartoon Archive at the University of Kent. Before this job I worked briefly at Birmingham Archdiocesan Archives.
