Having honed a unique skillset over the past 25 years since graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Delaware, I am an experienced, multi award-winning researcher, writer, documentarian and storyteller. My major was Communications, with a concentration in mass communications. But I have always shared a passion for learning, researching and presenting history topics--something instilled by family members, past teachers and places having lived and visited since childhood.
I took several “history” courses in college, but graduated one credit shy of earning a minor in the concentration area. I love the roles of detective and instructor, and have greatly admired the production style of legendary filmmaker Ken Burns, a true inspiration dating back to my college days.
