Over the past seven years, I've had the opportunity to share thoughts on art at libraries, museums, and synagogues. Moving into 2023, I'm happy to be doing live events once again.
Currently, in addition to series featured here, I'm offering two new talks: Visions of the American West and Lisette Model, Street Photographer.
Contact me if you would like more information on my availability, speakers fee, or to reserve a date. I Look forward to hearing from you,

"Thank you, once again, for a most fascinating presentation - about Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' private art collection. Your talk added depth and perspective to Jackie's life and your thoughtful presentation style helps everyone "lean in" to the material even more. We are so grateful!"
