I’m an independent historian, genealogist, and lecturer living in the Denver-Metro area. Specializing in researching history at the local level, I focus on placing individuals and families into the historical context of their communities. Earning my Masters degree in Public History at Boston’s Northeastern University I have worked on a variety of community-based projects in Boulder, Denver, and the Boston area that include history websites, museum exhibits, and a documentary. Working primarily as an independent historian, genealogist, and lecturer, I have also been an Affiliate Professor at Metropolitan State College of Denver teaching American and Colorado history. Currently I work as the Outreach Manager at the CU Heritage Center, a museum dedicated to the history of the University of Colorado-Boulder.
