  • What I do, where I work

  • Currently Senior Project Manager for Art Guild, Inc., I recently managed the fabrication and installation of exhibits for the International Civil Rights Center and Museum in Greensboro, NC. The museum is located in the historic Woolworth’s building, site of the birth of the sit-in movement on February 1, 1960.

    In 2009 I completed my Master’s in Philosophy and Religion with an emphasis in Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. My academic interests include history of science and philosophy, and explorations of science and spirituality.

    My previous science center experience includes Liberty Science Center from 1993-2007 where I was the Director of Featured Experiences, and worked with a cross-divisional team to research, select, and implement the traveling exhibitions, large format films, and 3D theater programs hosted by the center. Additionally I was also part of the team that created the $109 million renewal and renovation of the center that opened in July 2007.
