In addition to my ongoing graduate work in American studies, I continue to do work as a curator and public scholar. I serve currently as the president of the North Carolina Folklore Society, a 102 year old member organization that helps preserve and promote North Carolina’s traditional culture. I’m also a lab associate in the Digital Innovation Lab where I direct data ingest and management,curate digital exhibits, and write for the Digital Loray project. And, when I’m not sleeping or working on something else, I occasionally continue to help design and curate public historical exhibits and projects. I co-direct the ongoing project Locating Lynching, was recently project manager for the Blue Ridge Parks digital exhibit and in 2013, I curated an exhibit on North Carolina textile traditions at the Arts Center.
