I am a recent graduate of the public history graduate program at Rutgers University. I currently serve as the digital media coordinator for the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities, where I wrangle bloggers and tackle our social media platforms.
In the last two years I've created an oral history database using StoriesMatter for the Salem County Historical Society, collected data on school group attendance for the education department at Cleveland's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and I've digitized the Balch Institute Ethnic Images in Advertising Collection at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. I volunteer at the Alice Paul Institute in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey and the Digital Center at HSP.
In my spare time I am often silly and irreverent.
Yesterday, I finally went to the Museum of the Moving Image’s exhibit, Jim Henson’s Fantastic World. You have to understand, I grew up in a world that had muppets, but I was never really a “muppet person.” I have no memories of watching the Muppet Show, or Sesame Street, and although I absolutely adored Labyrinth and the Fraggles and Emmett Otter’s Jug Band Christmas, Dark Crystal remains shrouded in mystery. So, why am I going to a muppet exhibit?
