Since 2018 I have managed my organizations oral history project, and curated its analog and digital archives: Project manager. I plan, coordinate, and administer the Vietnam War Commemoration's Oral History Program to include obtaining appropriate venues, scheduling interviews, drafting scripts, coordinating videographer's schedule, and processing, preserving, digitizing, and archiving documents and photos to professional historical archival standards. I personally conducted nearly 400 interviews with Vietnam War veterans. I developed an ad hoc searchable database of a digital oral history archive of nearly 850 interviews. Digital curator. I developed standard operating procedures for an online presence of the organization's oral history archive, including its website and Vimeo site. I manage, curate, and preserve digital files and the archive database. I ensure all publicly accessible interview videos from the project are transcribed and captioned to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Digital archivist. I prepare both print and audio-visual media archive materials for digital conversion and accessioning at the Library of Congress Folk Life Center Veterans History Project, including interview materials videos, release forms, transcripts, photos, and other materials.
