Has worked at the Mizel Museum since: January 2007

While representing an Israeli artist, I made an appointment with Ellen Premack, Executive Director of the Mizel Museum, to discuss collaborating on a one-man show.  All of my education and experience up until the point I started working for the museum, and since, has informed my work here.

Making a difference in people’s lives and the future of the planet.

What famous celebrity would play you in a movie?
Will Ferrell

Who or what inspires you most and why?
Great art. I can spend all of my free time in museums, especially if I’m with my family!

Meshuganah. (Means “crazy.”)
