Who We Are

Jack Pittenger

I am a public historian with more than six years of experience as a museum consultant. I have worked with institutions of all sizes and types to help them reach their interpretive goals.

I believe that all content should be relatable and relevant to all audiences, and that the “so-what?” of any piece of information should be obvious. Museums have fascinating stories to tell, and they should not be shy about sharing what they know.
