My primary position is the Executive Director of the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) in the USA. I am focused on facilitating information exchange via standards, technology, and business best practices domestically and internationally.  As Secretary of the ISO Technical Subcommitee on Identification and Description (ISO TC46/SC 9), I facilitate the creation, organization, and maintenance of the suite of ISO international identifiers (ISBN, ISSN, DOI, ISRC, ISNI, etc.). In addition, I am the Secretary/Treasurer of the Society of Scholarly Publishing and contribute regularly to the Scholarly Kitchen blog.
