I have designed experiences and developed content for museums for over a decade. My career began at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History as a Media Assistant and Photographer. I developed my skills as a product and documentary photographer, video editor and interactive developer (in flash).
Wanting to play a bigger role in creating museum exhibitions, I moved to Philadelphia in 2010 to study Museum Exhibition Planning and Design at the University of the Arts. While there, I co-led the design and development of exhibitions at the American Swedish Historical Museum and the Independence Seaport Museum and contributed to the design of a number of exhibits at the Walters Art Museum. After graduating, I worked as a freelance exhibit designer for museums, historical societies and a local designer firm.
A mentor once described me as a Swiss army knife because of my diverse skillset. And that skill set has expanded again: into content strategy and development. Today I help research and craft meaningful stories and research imagery and videos to help tell these stories.
