Set down your *coffee* and get a load of our *fevered* pace!
A graduate from Parsons School of Design in NYC, Photographer and project manager Nathan Anderson comes to the Smithsonian Institution with over twenty years of experience as an image specialist. Responsible for overseeing the digitization of roughly over 500,000 objects within his first two years at the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum and the National Museum of Natural History he is no stranger to working with our varied collections, from a rare Tiffany vase to a 30 million year old fossilized specimen.
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.
