I am a furniture and design historian holding dual Master's degrees in decorative arts and design history as well as American material culture. My academic training in art and architectural history ranges from the ancient to contemporary periods, and I have a focused knowledge of objects produced or used in the Atlantic World ca. 1600-1940.
For the past ten years I have worked professionally in both museums and for private individuals working in curatorial, exhibition management, and research capacities. In my current role at Winterthur Museum, I raise funds for special projects as the museum's grant-writer.
