- About Me
History matters. The past is always present.
I am passionate about sharing stories of history’s ordinary people through the objects of their lives, and bridging the gap between our past and our future.
Whether at Jamestown Settlement or the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown, my goal is to connect visitors with the past, and encourage productive and beneficial dialogues about our present.
