Archaeologist | Curator | Educator 

I am an art historically trained archaeologist with a strong background in anthropology and museums, passionate about outreach and education. I am interested in how museums can help us understand, protect, and engage with the past and how they can better serve our communities today. I aim to make academic information accessible, fun, and inclusive. 

When I am not in the classroom or in a museum, I am at a historical cemetery somewhere admiring historic gravestones.



If you have any questions or if you are interested in having me speak in your museum, classroom, or educational event, please reach out!
