"Don't walk behind me, I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend."
-Unknown (often attributed to Albert Camus)
My name is Crystal McCullough, and I am currently a graduate student at the University of Texas at Austin on the brink of obtaining a Master of Science in Information Studies. My specialization is in the preservation of cultural materials of various media, with a focus in museums. For the past several months I have had the pleasure of working for the Texas Memorial Museum as an Assistant Collections Manager.
I have a broad palette as my interests go: hiking, camping, visiting museums, swimming, exploring old cemeteries, reading, traveling, playing board games, gardening, dancing, crafting, canoeing, telling cheesy jokes, sewing, collecting (or making) treasures from another's trash, and cooking; but most of all I enjoy the company of my family and friends.
The following website is a brief slice of my life. For writing samples and my resume, click on 'My Professional Hat.' Because it takes more to complete a person than simply illustrating academic success and professional experience, I thought I would add the 'My Other Hats' button. I figured this is where I could add fun photos and other projects I may be working on. And, of course, there is a 'Contact Me' button... which is self-explanatory.
