I've been one of those lucky people to have been involved with history for my whole career, ... Not many history majors get to do that.
It's a natural progression, ... Now I'll be in charge of operations, which is really where I wanted to end my career ... not that I hope it's over anytime soon.
Without really intending to, I kind of went up the ranks in museum management positions, ... I didn't plan on making a career of it, but it seems I really, really enjoy the work.
I want every marine who comes through the door to find something that relates to his or her career.
We'll be very busy leading up to opening day.
I think the best advice really is not to decide too early what you want to be when you grow up, ... Because there are so many options once you get out here in this big world ... you never know which direction fate's going to push you.
Opening day might sound like a long ways away, but this last year is going to be really action-packed to make sure we get everything done, ... It's a 360-degree sort of experience. It's a very ambitious exhibition program, and that's what we'll be scrambling to complete.
