I am a preservation architect and educator. I believe that the historic built environment is profoundly important to communities and individuals because it provides us with a sense of identity and orientation. Knowing who we were allows us to ask questions about who we are and who we are becoming.

Adjunct Faculty
Director, High Point Museum

I am a museum educator turned history museum director with nearly 20 years in the field.  My previous work as a museum educator greatly informs how I approach leading my institution towards its vision. Good museum educators know their audiences well and work with them to create programs that are meaningful and enjoyable.  They are skillful at helping visitors engage with new ideas and perspectives, often leading to new or deeper understanding.
