About Me


I am a public historian, graduate student, and digital hobbyist.

My Background

I grew up on a farm in the Driftless Region of Wisconsin, where I cultivated curiosity in the stories that cling to the landscape.

My interests led me to become a public historian and work with organizations including the Wisconsin Historical Society at Villa Louis and the National Park Service at Grand Portage.

Currently I am a PhD student of U.S. and public history at Loyola University Chicago, where I research the nineteenth century Upper Mississippi Valley and Great Lakes Region.
