EXHIBITION DEVELOPER + DESIGNER

I am an exhibition developer, designer, project manager, science communicator, dinosaur nerd, collector of crazy shoes, and more. It is my wide range of interests that originally drew me to museum exhibitions and the opportunity they provide to dive into new subjects with each new project. While the topic may jump from gravity to Giganotosaurus to gingham, I am always passionate about creating dynamic, hands-on educational experiences that make ideas more accessible, engaging, and fun.

I earned my BS in Anthropological Sciences at The Ohio State University and my MFA in Museum Exhibition Planning + Design at the University of the Arts. My background includes work for COSI, PGAV Destinations, and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History where I learned everything from design documentation to collections management. With an academic foundation in both science and design, I am a strong exhibition developer and designer. Throughout my work I have found these skill sets to inform one another and my favorite projects are those in which I can exercise both.

 

I am currently looking for positions in which I can bring together my curiosity and technical skills to create exciting educational and cultural experiences.
