Being a native New Yorker, I have always taken advantage of the city’s best art venues. Visiting exhibitions, conducting art historical research, writing about art and educating friends and peers about the creative arts has always been my passion.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Brandeis University with a B.A. in Art History and a concentration in Studio Art. I spent the majority of my four years at Brandeis working at the Rose Art Museum- famous for its collection of 20th Century American Art. While at the Rose I gave tours of both the rotating exhibitions and the museum’s permanent holdings.

In 2008 my former art history professors at Brandeis nominated me to write several short essays for the first comprehensive catalogue of the Rose Art Museum's permanent collection (Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 2009) that focus on paintings by Thomas Hart Benton, Alexander Calder, Larry Poons and Andy Warhol.

I have worked in all facets of the New York City artworld, beginning my career at Christie’s Auction House, and then moving to an American paintings gallery on 57th street. I learned the tricks of the trade at a mid-century design showroom and served as the primary cataloger and researcher at a prominent works on paper gallery on Manhattan’s Madison Avenue.

During my free time over the years, I have volunteered at the Metropolitan Museum in both its Photo Studio and Image Library and have also interned at Hirschl & Adler Galleries.
