Your Background

Your Biography

I have worked at MJH for 10 years. I am involved both in the Museum's general website and in exhibition websites, creating ways to enhance the user experience, whether the user is interacting with the exhibition in person or online at home. After a multi-year hiatus, we have the ability to upgrade our Museum website and bring it into the 21st century. I am excited to learn about functionality and building community. I work with a collection that does not really lend itself to self-curating, but I know it is an area that requires further exploration. Who better to learn from than this community?
