I graduated from Kenyon College in 2009, earned a master’s degree from the University of Alabama (2014), and a Ph.D. in art history from the University of Virginia (2020). I have over six years of experience as a digital humanist in multiple modes, including work as a digital humanities project developer (2016–22), a digital pedagogy specialist (2020–21), a lecturer and professor of art history (2013–14; 2016; 2017, 2020–23; including eight online classes), and a Digital Scholarship/ Digital Humanities Specialist (2023–).

I have also been a part-time college tennis coach (Kenyon College, Division III, 2020–21; Lafayette College, Division I, 2022–23) and taught art history as a lecturer and professor at Muhlenberg College, the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Carroll University, the University of Virginia, the University of Alabama, and J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College. Past courses include Survey of Art I and II, The Early Renaissance in Italy, The High Renaissance in Italy, Modern Art, and Contemporary Art.

At the University of Virginia I was a member of the Praxis digital humanities program in the Scholars’ Lab, the Public Humanities Lab, the Institute for Public History, and served as a co-coordinator of the Interdisciplinary Medieval Colloquium. I was one of the first candidates to receive UVA’s Graduate Certificate in the Digital Humanities (2020) and spent one year as a Digital Pedagogy Specialist with a Learning Design & Technology team at UVA at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
