What brought you to this career path?
Ever since I was a student at the University of Pennsylvania, I’ve been interested in contemporary artists and artists who are responding to the times that we live in. I used to think that I would never want to work in a museum or teach, and ironically, that’s exactly what I’ve ended up spending my career doing.
