Your Background

Your Biography

I have worked at CHNM for 3 years, working on a variety of web projects, including the Hurricane Digital Memory Bank, Gulag: Many Days, Many Lives, and Omeka. Prior to coming to CHNM, I worked as the Director of Education and Public Programs at the U.S. Navy Museum in Washington, DC for seven years. My research interests include popular collecting practices in the U.S., online history museums, material culture, and late-19th and early-20th-century cultural history.
