"My passion for art history was ignited in Madrid’s Prado museum, when an engaging educator “cracked the code” of the museum’s masterpieces for me. Now, as a museum educator myself, my goal is to reveal the secrets of the city’s fascinating museums and monuments by connecting with people individually, just like I was as a student. I try to translate art’s complex messages by relating it to today’s world whenever I can—and with a touch of humor when possible!"
