I am an historic preservation consult operating out of the Lakes Region and have worked on projects throughout the state of New Hampshire. I have worked on a wide variety of historic preservation projects since founding my own company: I have done community planning surveys for municipalities, determinations of eligibility for Section 106 projects, New Hampshire State Register Nominations, National Register Nominations, and various types of building studies from Historic Structure reports to Condition Assessments. Though the majority of my clients are municipalities and non-profits, I also often work with individual homeowners. For examples of my work, please visit my Projects sub-pages for Community Planning Projects, Historic Building Assessments, and State Register, National Register, and Inventory.
I have a Master in Arts in Historic Preservation from Plymouth State University and am really interested in the connections between historic preservation and environmental sustainability. I see historic preservation as a means of celebrating cultural heritage, mitigating climate change, and creating economic growth. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Medieval Art History from Bard College and wrote my undergraduate thesis on a wooden Norwegian medieval parish church named Uvdal. In this thesis, I studied what the physical structure of the church reveals about the changes in rural Norwegian culture between when it was constructed in ca 1167 and its last major renovation in 1819. I am still very passionate about medieval architecture, but have shifted my focus to the more recent past that I can find in central New Hampshire!
