Has worked at the Mizel Museum since: August 2005

After finishing grad school (Art History) in Boulder, I moved to the big city of Denver. As part of that transition, I started working at Udi’s first full-service restaurant in Stapleton. One of the regulars, an Israeli gentleman who liked to discuss art and culture, introduced me to his good friend Ellen Premack, Executive Director of the Mizel Museum. And that was that.

What is your favorite part about working for Mizel Museum?
There’s a lot of heart and soul that motivates this staff.

What is your favorite way to waste time?
Looking at vintage photographs and fantasizing about living in them.

Who or what inspires you most and why?
The space where art, science and spirituality intersect is where the nectar lies.

Who is your favorite Jewish artist?
Modi. (Amedeo Modigliani).

What Yiddish word do you most like using?
Putz. It reminds me of driving with my Dad, who charismatically shouts that word at only the most deserving of drivers.

What is your favorite book?
Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami
