I've always had a lot of interests, and I don't plan on slowing down anytime soon...

Though I’ve remained in the history and museum fields for the majority of my professional life, I’ve worked ad hoc in various marketing, artistic, and media endeavors. I’ve always been drawn to chronicling my adventures, and my previous experience in the aforementioned industries have culminated in an multi-disciplinary approach in documentation. So welcome to my site where I’ll talk about my graduate research, my museum work, and my travels around the world. It may give you content whiplash, but you’ll never get bored!
