What interested you in your position at the MSU Museum? I wanted to get museum work experience while I was still in undergrad and the CoLab Studio allowed me to explore the museum studies atmosphere while also interacting with members of my community.
What is your favorite exhibition at the MSU Museum? My favorite exhibit at the MSU Museum is the Appetite for Deconstruction within the CoLab Studio's 1.5° Celsius exhibition. It’s my favorite because I really enjoy the conversations it lets me have with visitors, plus it’s pretty cool that we can hear the mushrooms communicating with each other.
What do you do in your free time? I enjoy playing with my pets, listening to music, and being a generally dorky human with my friends.
What is your dream job? I’m not exactly sure what my dream job is per se, but I’m currently hoping to work within the classical studies field at a museum or library.
