As associate education specialist at the Getty Center, I encourage visitors to spend time looking closely at art in the hopes of sparking curiosity and inviting dialogue to inspire multiple levels of experience. My passion for the arts was piqued while living in London, where I completed the Christie’s Diploma Course in Fine and Decorative Arts, followed by a master’s degree in art history from the University of London, Birkbeck. My current project, Community Photoworks, is a collaboration between the J. Paul Getty Museum’s Education Department, the nonprofit tutoring center 826LA, and Ánimo Venice Charter, a Title I high school in LAUSD.
