Greetings!

I am the primary mountmaker at the National Museum of American History. I have had the pleasure of mounting some of America's most beloved treasures, everything from a 1933 Double Eagle coin, Van Halen's guitar, a bunch of heart valves, 19th century paper mache silk moths, Congressional Medal of Honor, Julia Child's OSS signal mirror, and Cookie Monster.


I've written a few blogs for the museum about my mounts:
