Personal interests
Music--I have played the violin since I was 10 years old.
Dance--I studied classical ballet for 12 years.

I originally hail from Michigan where I studied classical ballet and violin (which I still play) while growing up. I received my B.A. with high honors from the University of Michigan, where I majored in Philosophy. My father was an art teacher and artist, so I grew up surrounded by contemporary art: not only his paintings and sculptures, but what I saw on trips to Detroit area museums with my parents, and what I read about in the many art books and magazines we had around the house. This background eventually led me to graduate work in Art History, which I pursued at Johns Hopkins University, receiving a Masters Degree. My particular areas of interest are 19th and 20th century European and American art, and I have taught the Survey of Art I and II, Modern and Contemporary Art, 19th Century European Art, the Survey of American Art, Film courses—including an FYS focusing on American Film during a four year stint in the FYP (my minor at Johns Hopkins was in film theory and criticism), and, for the Outdoor Studies Program, Art and Nature.
