Your Background

Your Biography

In my capacity I oversee the development and maintenance of the NMAH Web site and other electronic offerings such as interactive kiosks and handheld devices. Our program works with staff from across the Museum to develop ideas, create compelling content, and produce award-winning products in collaboration with many top designers. I also think about the Museum’s online strategy—how we can further the Museum’s mission by bringing more people together with our rich collections and expert resources of our staff to inspire a deeper understanding of American history.
