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.
It just hit me today that I’m starting my internship at the Rock Hall in THREE weeks. I just have to get through this last course (Historical Archaeology) and then I can hightail it to Cleveland for six weeks of Music and History and Museum craziness.
I’m not sure I’ll make it.
This is me, pondering not making it. Yes, silly faces are necessary.
