Class of 2017, 2018

I’m from Oakland, California. I just spent the last two years living in Chicago getting my M.A. in Visual and Critical Studies from the Art Institute of Chicago. I’ll be back in the Bay Area this summer for my third internship with LHIP at San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. This summer he worked as a strictly hands-on intern in the park’s Small Boat Shop as a Preservation Intern. He was  awarded the position that is a Direct Hiring Authority (DHA) and contributed to preserving and restoring some small boats in the park’s collection.
