My work reflects my interests in history ( which I studied on the undergraduate and graduate level) , natural history, and psychology.  My projects often explore family history and the effects of historical events in families on the individual in the present.  What are the questions our ancestors left behind? How are they presented to us in our own lives?  How will our lives be improved if we seek answers to those questions?  What are the consequences if we do not?   Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "every house is a quotation out of all forests, and mines, and stone quarries; and every man is a quotation from all his ancestors."  Our culture's obsession with radical individualization and personal autonomy often ignores or fails to value the silent, greater family that preceded us.
