10 things about me...
 I wear lots of hats, but everything is connected!
 I'm a learning scientist and professor at Northwestern University. I teach classes on Holocaust memory, hidden narratives, museums and memorials, film and fiction, and education design.
 I write fiction about history and memory. My novel TRAIN and my choose-your-own-pathway short story THE 19TH WINDOW are inspired by hidden Holocaust histories.
 I'm currently adapting my novel TRAIN into a screenplay.
 I'm the founder of Unsilence, a national initiative to help communities explore hidden injustices in the past and present.
 I'm a learning experience designer. I create digital exhibitions, webquests, and interactive testimonies.
 I'm a public speaker. I facilitate youth workshops, community programs, and educator trainings. Since 2010, I've reached more than 16,000 people across 18 states (and counting!).
 I co-chair the Illinois Holocaust & Genocide Commission.
 A singer in the folk-rock band They Won't Win, I co-wrote and co-produced our debut album, LOST AT SEA, to explore grief, intimate partner violence, and LGBTQ acceptance.
 Originally from London, I've lived in Chicago since 2004.
