Ken Rahaim

Senior Mass Digitization Program Officer

Ken's work history in cultural heritage photography, enterprise digital asset management and enterprise level IT solutions have intersected perfectly for his role as the Smithsonian's Senior Mass Digitization Program Officer. Ken supports the Smithsonian's Digitization Program Office's goal of creating a vibrant digitization culture at the Smithsonian, and focuses on increasing the quality and quantity of Smithsonian digital assets by supporting digitization projects, providing technical expertise to the units, leveraging internal and external collaborations, and promoting expertise in mass digitization and workflows. Ken's motorsports history as an amateur race car driver at circuits throughout North America and Europe has helped him emphatically put the "rapid" in the Smithsonian's rapid capture digitization projects!
