"‘Nothing great in the world has ever been done without passion,’ according to Hegel, the German philosopher. For me, teaching art and history is all about introducing museum visitors to the exceptional people who, driven by their passions, left a lasting mark on the world. As a guide, I try to help visitors see art as a way to understand today’s fast-paced, changing world. Museums bring culture and civilizations to life, illuminating the connections between the past and present."
