- About Me
As a public historian teaching in the CSU, my curriculum vitae demonstrates my commitment to public history practice in archival studies and curatorship. I am an innovative educator and intentional leader that creates and collaborates to reach a larger audience. I have written about a myriad of topics in history, and document the learning and preservation of history.
Current projects include processing a series in the Mervyn Dymally collection with archivist Azalea Camacho, curating an online exhibit in Spring 2020, and collaborating with institutions, like the Autry Museum on public history projects. I curated an exhibition, “I Am the West,” at the Autry in January 2019. In November 2019, I curated an exhibit, “Change-Makers: Past and Present in Western History,” at the John F. Kennedy Memorial Library at Cal State University, Los Angeles.
I am a Reader at the Munger Research Center, at the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens.
