I'm an artist and public historian, telling stories about relationships, immigration, identity, collective memory, and the role of mapping and the imaginary in storytelling and history.
I graduated twice from Concordia University with a BFA in Studio Arts and an Italian minor, and a BA in Honours Public History. In 2019, I completed my masters in Public History at Carleton University. My master's research project, The Yellow Line, was an archival photo, installation, and oral history pop-up exhibit, presented at the Casa d’Italia in March 2019.
My work is about imagining and remembering, and sometimes imagining memories. Art is a space in which I have explored themes of memory, nostalgia, identity, and autobiography. My work as a public historian is inspired and informed as much by these explorations as the theories and methodologies of historical work. My professional work is often multi-disciplinary, bringing together my training as an oral historian, with storytelling, installation, performance art, and digital media.
Currently, I am teaching at Dawson College and always looking for opportunities to collaborate and engage in public history work through museums, archives, and organizations that value innovative, interactive, diverse and meaningful projects on history, culture, and heritage.
