I am the Director of Public History at Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS). From 2011 - 2014, I served as Co-Director of Students and Faculty in the Archives (SAFA), the collaborative postsecondary education project which led to TeachArchives.org.

I received my Ph.D. from Columbia University, and I’m currently finishing my book, a cultural history of newspaper advice columns in early twentieth-century America.

I have helped produce documentaries including the 2003 Peabody Award-winning film Tupperware! I have curated exhibitions at BHS, New-York Historical Society, and other institutions. I have also spearheaded important digital projects including An American Family Grows in Brooklyn: The Lefferts Family Papers, and “Brooklyn Waterfront History,” a partnership with Brooklyn Bridge Park.

As a public historian, I enjoy working on projects that make critical themes in American history accessible and relevant to diverse audiences.
