With 25 years of experience in the field, I bring a deep bank of techniques, approaches and strategies to projects. I work as the Director of Interpretation at the Baltimore Museum of Industry and also maintain a small consultancy based in Baltimore, Maryland. As a consultant, I collaborate with teams to create empowering and engaging experiences, grounded in mission, audience need, and resources. My experience includes strategic and interpretive planning, coaching and thought partnership, curriculum and program development and assessment.

What I love about experience design

The beginning of a project is the most exciting part of a journey for me. I love the big thinking, soupy creative place at the start of things. What will the focus be? What possibilities exist? What might we be overlooking? Who is and who should be at the table? How will we make decisions? What values and vision will drive our work?
