I have devoted my career to the museum field, primarily leading multidisciplinary teams in the creative development and project management of interpretive exhibit, media, and programmatic experiences.  This work has included time at history and cultural heritage institutions, a leading children’s museum, an interactive science museum, as well as projects with exhibit planning and design consultancies.

 

My work has focused on understanding visitor’s existing knowledge bases and desires, extensive prototyping exercises, and measuring learning outcomes related to museum experiences, and applying this knowledge to exhibit development and design.  Participatory and co-design projects have since followed, including design research to imagine what a future history centre might look like, and projects to co-curate exhibit content.
