I’m a public historian who values work and projects that bring exciting historical discoveries and experiences to a wide audience. In current and past projects, I’ve drawn from material culture studies, living history and experimental archaeology, military and maritime history, and historical archaeology. You can find all of my publications available for free under “Publications” here.

I’ve pursued this work both as an academic, earning M.A. and Ph.D. degrees at the University of Delaware, and through work at museums and historic sites. Since 2017, I have been the Gallery Interpretation Manager at the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia.
