About Me


I have written six books on fashion history and one on interior design history. I am in the process of writing and collaborating on several other books.

Local Historical Research

Around 1997, I began to do historical research in the Pittsylvania County area. I also assisted in the mapping of the Pittsylvania County Clerk's Office, which is a valuable tool for all researchers who visit the courthouse.

I was editor for the Pittyslvania Historical Society's quarterly, The Pittsylvania Packet, from the fall of 2002 until the winter of 2013.

Architecture and Interior Design

I became interested in architecture due to living in a historic home. Several years ago, I decided to start writing about the architectural and interior designs topics that I have learned about, and to begin offering architectural and interior design research assistance to clients. In addition to writing for this website on architecture and interior design, I have co-written some of the articles on the historic homes and people of Chatham.

Graphic Design and Editing

As before mentioned, I was editor of the Pittsylvania Packet for over a decade. I prepared the 44-page 2000 Chatham Horse Show program, and have been involved with the editing, preparation, and cover design of many volumes in Patricia B. Mitchell's Inkling Series on Foodhistory.

Other Professional Activities

I have worked on projects that involved:
