I am an art-architectural historian and historic preservationist specializing in luxury interiors and elite American identities in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. I graduated from Sotheby's Institute of Art - London with an MA in Fine and Decorative Art in 2016. Research interests include the Gilded Age and American Country Place Era (ca. 1880 to ca. 1930); Beaux-Arts and 'Revival' styles; genteel spatial typology; and historicism in the interior, particularly as it relates to modern identity and technology. Areas of focus include Vanderbilt residences; the architect Richard Morris Hunt and associated professionals and firms, including Jules Allard, Batterson & Eisele, and Rafael Guastavino; bathrooms and bathing spaces; gentlemen's rooms; and restoration and reuse in the 'New Gilded Age.' I also research and write on the history and heritage of my hometown of Cleveland, Tennessee.
