I fell in love with art as a kid growing up in New York City, and followed my passion to major in art history at Harvard, and then complete a PhD at Yale. My focus on American art in particular reflects my great admiration for the project of democracy, and fascination for the role visual culture plays in our dynamic, pluralistic, and complex society. Historical experiences and narratives are crucial elements of how we understand our nation, and our future possibilities. In all my work, I hope to help readers understand significant current issues in new ways through the lens of the past, and/or cross-cultural comparison.

I thought it would be fascinating to see American at the time through his eyes.(less)
