My museum career began in 1998 at The Chicago Arts Club.

Under the direction of Patrick Smith, I was given the opportunity to work directly with Blue Chip artists such as Kusama, David Hockney, Chris Burden, Cornelia Parker and Louise Bourgeoise. 

Since then I have worked in a wide variety of Museums including:

 

  • San Diego Natural History Museum

  • Cool Globes

  • San Diego Museum of Art

  • Museum of the Living Artist

  • San Diego New Children's Museum

  • The New Americans Museum

  • The Mardi Gras Museum of Costumes and Culture

The New Americans Museum - San Diego, California

The New Americans Museum is a dedicated to telling the stories of immigration experiences and document via oral histories the personal testimonials to those who have relocated to the United States.

 

I worked with Director Gayle Hom to build and prepare the museum for the Grand Opening.  The museum includes an exhibits gallery, a learning and research center and a recording studio for the collection of oral histories from immigrant groups of San Diego.
