About: Sarah Waldorf

Greetings! I'm a social media coordinator in the Getty's web group. What does this mean? Basically, I stir up trouble and insist we generate new and challenging content for web. I'd like to continue the flow of ideas and creativity from the individual to the museum to the web.
