As an art and design historian, critic and scholar specializing in modern European and American architecture and design of the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries, I currently serve as Adjunct Assistant Professor at SUNY Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. A native New Yorker, I began my career in the NYC art gallery and auction house field, and served as museum educator at The Museum of Modern Art for over two decades. My own research explores the modern domestic interior, and my doctoral work investigates the oeuvre of Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich from an interdisciplinary perspective.
