Museum Hack: What are three fun facts about you most people don’t know? 

  • I have run a half marathon on the Great Wall of China.
  • I have been to every Disney Park in the WORLD.
  • I love some piping hot tea. Obsessed. 

Museum Hack: If you had to be trapped in the Museum overnight, what would you do?

First double check it wasn’t going all Night at the Museum on me.  Once that’s done,  I make my way through every period room in the Met pretending to be living that life for an hour. Even the preserved room from Pompeii just for a real adventure. 

Museum Hack: If you could work at any other museum, which one would you choose?

The Musee D’Orsay in Paris, France. It’s a converted train station, and yeah, there’s amazing art, but there’s also this seasonal risotto in their cafe that is to die for. I swear by it. 

Museum Hack: If you were to be reincarnated as an animal, which would it be and why?

A Maine Black Bear. You can keep to yourself, steal food from App Trail hikers, and hibernate for half the year. This makes me sound super lazy, but it just sounds so comfy. 

Museum Hack: If you could have a drink with one person in history for 15 minutes, who would it be and what are you drinking?

I’m sure I supposed to choose a famous historian dude, but I choose the Queen. Queen Mother RuPaul. She has made an empire in branding and knows herself so well that I find her just inspiring. I’m sure she’d blow my mind with wisdom then we’d completely throw down and gossip about Drag Race.
