I am a public historian and theatre maker currently serving as the Historian at the Medgar and Myrlie Evers Home National Monument in Jackson, Mississippi.
Originally from rural Pennsylvania, I hold a Master’s degree in Public History and Cultural Heritage from Trinity College Dublin and I'm passionate about the intersection between history and theatre. My professional background is full of experiences telling engaging stories—from the legacy of the Mississippi Civil Rights Movement to the intersection of southern and Jewish identities to the visual history of Dublin's Glasnevin Cemetery to the development of the art glass industry in New Bedford, Massachusetts. I am also the author of the humor book Literary Starbucks.
When I'm not thinking about collective memory, historic preservation, and racial and economic justice, I am running, hiking, sewing, baking sourdough, and playing and designing tabletop role-playing games.
I wear a lot of hats. Let's talk about what's possible.
