About Tyler

His professional practice in born-digital archives focuses on applying on archival principles to the preservation of electronic records, and developing workflows for appraisal, accessioning, ingest, preservation, and access of the same.

Previously, Tyler was the head of Digital Programs at the University of Wyoming, and before that, an archivist in Anchorage, Alaska working with the National Park Service.

He received his MA in Public History from CSU Sacramento in 2011, where he also worked as an archival processing student at the California State Archives.

His interests are in expanding the capacity of UNC Charlotte Special Collections and University Archives to preserve and provide access to electronic archival records, focusing on the intersection of technology and public memory and the role that a digitally connected archives can have, and working to diversify the collections and the practice of archives through applying social justice principles.
