I am an  art historian and museum consultant with more than 25 years experience working in museums.

In 1990, after earning a Ph.D. in European Art at Case Western Reserve University, I left rainy Cleveland for sunny San Diego to begin my museum career at the San Diego Museum of Art. As

Associate Curator of European Art I in the 1990s I got involved with new media and, in the early days of the internet, I began developing content-rich projects for museums using new technologies.

In 2000 I left the curatorial world, and sunny San Diego, to return to rainy Cleveland to lead the New Media Department at the Cleveland Museum of Art. In 2009 I returned to teaching in the AAP Master of Arts in Museum Studies program for Johns Hopkins University, as well as in the classroom, at Case Western Reserve University where I am adjunct faculty in the Department of Art History.   I am also Editor and Co-PI of the Horizon Report: Museum Edition. (

I served on the board of directors for MCN and as the AAM Board-appointed member of the National Committee for Archives, Libraries, and Museums (CALM). From 2002 to 2004 I served as a member of AAM’s Media and Technology Standing Professional Committee (M&T), and from 2004-2007 as Chair of M&T.

I am the author of three books and numerous articles and my more ephemeral writing can be found here on the Quattrocentrist ( and on the MIDEA website (
