I’m a storyteller in pursuit of social justice-oriented scholarship that amplifies historically marginalized voices and illuminates the oft-neglected stories about the world around us.
I am a public historian based in Saratoga Springs, NY. I’m interested in the stories that we tell about the past, and what those stories mean for us today. My current work explores how the past is talked about in public discourse and social media, and how the narratives we tell can undermine or perpetuate systemic inequality.
I currently work as an Editorial Assistant in the Acquisitions department at the State University of New York Press, where I work with authors and editors to publish monographs, edited volumes, and journals in the fields of history, philosophy, religion, and more.
I have experience in writing, editing, curatorial practice, teaching, web development, and event management. As an undergraduate student, I pursued coursework in environmental history, history of the medieval Mediterranean and Middle East, and intellectual history, with a minor in environmental studies. Later, I graduated with a Master of Arts in History and a Graduate Certificate in Public History from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. My fields of study included museum studies, digital humanities, United States history, and global history.
In my spare time, I enjoy baking, creating and viewing art, and caring for my growing collection of plants. I am also hoping to develop a blog (or vlog) that explores the process of art-making as a disabled artist with limited hand mobility.
