I am currently the Exhibits and Education Specialist at the Paul S. Russell, MD Museum of Medical History and Innovation at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. It's a fascinating place to work!
- You can see what the museum is up to by checking out our Facebook page.
- I occasionally write guest posts for the museum director's blog column, "Museum Mysteries," at the online magazine Wonders and Marvels. Here's one of my favorite posts, "Funny-looking Scissors and the Empire State Building."
Outside of work, you can find me at my current blog project, A Catalog of Curiosity. I'm a few months into a thousand day project to try one hundred new things and reflect on them. The things run the gamut from reading books and visiting museums I’ve been meaning to get to, to having grand new adventures. They are all connected to what I consider my work, which includes history, writing, teaching, navigating the role of museums in their communities, and more. Here is a sampling of the posts:
- Returning Overdue on Time: a review of Marilyn Johnson's "This Book is Overdue! How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All."
- We Do Read The Comments (an off-list post)
- Windows Into Another World: a review of the Museum of Russian Icons in Clinton, MA
- Some Say, to Survive It, You Need to Be as Mad as a Hatter (in which I try a traditional craft new to me)
