I'm the Curator of Exhibits and Interpretation at Naper Settlement, Chicagoland's outdoor history museum. Previous projects include the Chicago History Museum's "Wet With Blood: The Investigation of Mary Todd Lincoln's Cloak" website and "Chicago: Crossroads of America" exhibition. I have a Ph.D. in American History and Public History from Loyola University Chicago. My academic research focuses on the impact tourist attractions and other commercial enterprises had on nineteenth century Americans' public memory of the Civil War.
