About Me

With over ten years of training in Jewish History, I earned my Master’s degree from the University of Maryland-College Park. My MA thesis was titled “‘An Uncertain Life in Another World’: German and Austrian Jewish Refugee Life in Shanghai, 1938- 1950.”

At UMD, I also earned a MLIS in Archival Science. I work as Reference Archivist and Social Media Manager for the American Jewish Historical Society at the Center for Jewish History.

I have also been writing my history blog since March 2011. At present, I have over 116,000 followers. You may find my blog here: http://historicity-was-already-taken.tumblr.com.
