Personal Interests

I was born and raised in the lower Hudson Valley of New York State. My undergraduate major was in music history and violoncello, and my master's work focused on music iconography in William Hogarth's London, as well as library reference services for music, art, theater, and dance. In my leisure time I enjoy cooking and food culture, the piano, and figure drawing.
