I am a junior concentrating in the History of Art in the Department of Art and Archaeology, pursuing certificates in German, French, and Medieval Studies. My interests include Gothic architecture, Northern Renaissance painting, theories of visual creativity, and historiography. I‘ve written on theories of anthropology in art history through a study of fifteenth-century choir tapestries in France. Now I am looking to write on the art historical theories of the Austrian art historian, Otto Pächt.
I live with my parents and our three labradors in Bucks County, PA. On campus, I'm involved as a director of Princeton Model Congress, a research assistant to one of my professors, a member of the Student Advisory Board of the Princeton University Art Museum, and a student tour guide there too. I am also involved with advocacy for individuals with intellectual disabilities, having served as a director of Camp PALS, a camp for teenagers with Down Syndrome held annually in Radnor, PA. During the summer of 2011, I was the Princeton Internships in Civic Service (PICS) intern at the Art Collections of the Huntington Library, in Los Angeles. In the summer of 2012 I will be in Munich for a month with Princeton in Munich before I intern at the Musée d'Orsay with Princeton in France. I am also trying to write a children's book set in France around the time the cathedrals were being designed and constructed. You‘re likely to find me drinking a NOLA at Small World Coffee.
