Dancer for thirteen years; interests include a passion for theater and its ability to shape the audiences’ understanding of the world. My goal is to create informed citizens who understand how our past brought us to the present, and how we can study the past to inform our future…especially as the public becomes increasingly reliant on, and comfortable with, technology.
