I am a cultural anthropologist and public historian specializing in all things Adirondack. After completing my PhD in anthropology at the CUNY Graduate Center in 2004, I worked as a university professor in both New York and London before returning to my home in the Adirondacks to put my skills to work for my own community in the field of public history. I am currently employed as the Hamilton County Historian and an Associate Adjunct Professor in Anthropology and Economics at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. I serve as a Trustee for Adirondack Architectural Heritage as well as the Association of Public Historians of New York State, for which I also act as the Region 6 (Adirondack) Coordinator. Waydack is a way to supplement my income by doing what I love to do while living where I love to live.
