Ana Marie joined New York Public Radio in 2015 as an Assistant Archivist, to complete a two-year NEH Grant to transfer and preserve historic WNYC recordings in the Municipal Archives Collection. Originally recorded on reel-to-reel tape and 16 inch lacquer discs, these materials date mainly between the late 1930s and early 1970s.
Originally from the Austin area, Ana attended The University of Texas and received a BA in Art History and an MSIS in Information Studies. She was also a DJ for KVRX Student Radio, spinning "none of the hits all of the time." After graduation in 2012, Ana crisscrossed the country, first working with art collection records at the Perlman Teaching Museum at Carleton College in Minnesota and in digital asset management at Phoenix Art Museum in Arizona. She is currently an Archivist at The Museum of Modern Art and a member of XFR Collective, an NYC-based media preservation group.
