Production Curator, Back With A Vengeance
SAGE is the country's largest and oldest organization dedicated to improving the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) older adults. SAGE has pioneered programs and services for the aging LGBT community, provided technical assistance and training to expand opportunities for LGBT older people across the country, and provided a national voice on LGBT aging issues. In 2005, SAGE became the first official LGBT delegate at the White House Conference on Aging. In 2010, SAGE was awarded a three-year $900,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Administration on Aging to seed the creation of the nation's only National Resource Center on LGBT Aging.
My expertise is in the Italian and French bel canto repertory of the 19th and early 20th centuries. I have a large collection of rare vocal and orchestral scores and song repertory, which I use to craft unique recitals for interested singers and performing companies. I craft engaging, thoroughly researched presentations, pre-performance lectures, and program notes on 19th century opera composers. I am the owner and curator of the Kaufman Chronologies, Thomas G. Kaufman's 40-year project to document casts and repertory of opera houses worldwide during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Using the Kaufman Chronologies, I have contributed to CD liner notes for the British record label Opera Rara. I'm also a highly proficient writer and administrative professional with sixteen years of experience ranging across the non-profit, legal, retail, and telecommunications industries. I have exceptional organizational and communication skills and work independently to identify and prioritize critical needs and implement effective solutions to problems. I love being thrown seemingly impossible projects and figuring out how to make them reality.
