What is your favorite gallery or Hamilton moment?

There have been many – I’ve enjoyed talking to gallery visitors and looking at each show myself. I’d have to choose the afternoon that I finished hanging my senior project up, however. I didn’t quite believe I could do it at the start of installation!


When you are not working at the gallery what are you up to?

My favorite pastimes of late include reading, running, and watching sports.


Tell us about your favorite exhibition at the Emerson Gallery?

It was a pleasure to hear John Sonsini talk about his work in the gallery itself. I liked that exhibition very much.


Do you have a favorite medium?

When I visit museums or galleries, I enjoy looking at video/installation art and painting the most.


If you could have any artist create your portrait whom would you choose?

Richard Avedon – his subjects always look handsome.


Which musician or band would you most like to hear perform Charissima?

Probably Emmylou Harris. It’s a sad song.
