I am an exhibition designer and graphic designer who has been working in museums in Washington DC and New York City since 1998. I have a BA in Cultural Anthropology and Art, and an MA in Museum Studies. I am currently the Chair and Academic Advisor for the Graduate Program in Exhibition Design at the Corcoran College of Art + Design. I am also a practicing Exhibition Designer, most recently employed for five years at the National Museum of American History where I designed notable exhibitions including The Gettysburg Address, The First Ladies Collection, Thomas Jefferson's Bible, and, on a lighter note, Phyllis Diller's Gag File, and FOOD: Transforming the American Table, 1950-2000 which includes Julia Child's kitchen. In addition to working as a designer I serve on the Board of Directors for the Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums.
I grew up living in Africa and Asia, including Zaire (now DRC), Rwanda, Senegal, and Bangladesh. I have also lived in Ireland, Washington DC and New York City.
I have a passion for creative problem solving, clean design that incorporates rich texture, creating spaces filled with meaning, and engaging people through physical, visual, and intellectual means.
Above all, I try not to take things too seriously.
