I'm a historian, teacher, and writer whose research focuses on 20th century New York City history, with particular interest in housing, Queens, and the two New York World's Fairs. I have worked in public history settings for several years and am currently a Research Associate at the New York Public Library's Center for Educators and Schools, an editor at the Gotham Center for New York City History, and an Adjunct Lecturer at CUNY. I also hosted the Ultimate NYC Trivia Night at the Museum of the City of New York for several years.
