archives & records management, research, writing, and preservation.
After discovering a passion for local history in 2014 and writing on it extensively, I co-founded Capitol Hill Historical Society in 2017.
I bring a high level of knowledge, experience, and dedication to all that I do. l collaborate with my clients, my fellow colleagues, and the community at large to produce a product of the highest standard.
"Felix qui potuit rerum cognoscere
As a student of history, I studied
the classics extensively and no other
phrase stuck out to me quite like this
one. It translates as "Happy was he who was able to know the causes of things" and it is my guiding principle. I believe that what we do should bring us joy and nothing brings me more joy than discovering what happened and why and preserving that legacy for future generations.
