I am a professor of art history at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia where I have taught since the  fall of 1992.  I teach courses in the areas of ancient and medieval art, the history of mosaics, the history of Paris, and the films of Alfred Hitchcock.  I have an undergraduate degree in English and studio art and an M.A. in art history from the University of Massachusetts/Amherst.  I trained as a medievalist at the University of Michigan/Ann Arbor with a Ph.D. in the history of art.  My areas of research broadened when I began my teaching career and I have published articles, reviews, and delivered papers on topics ranging from ancient mosaics to international cinema beyond the work I do as a medievalist.  Current research projects include a book on the history of mosaics.  I have been a long-time member of the Society of American Mosaic Artists (SAMA) and served on the board for seven years.  I am also a member of the College Art Association, the International Center of Medieval Art, and the Medieval Academy of America.
