Isaac Fitzsimons

Research Associate
Favorite Art Form: 


Prior to joining Americans for the Arts, Isaac interned at the Kennedy Center where he supported the planning and delivery of arts integration workshops for teachers in the DC Metropolitan area.

A lifetime dabbler in multiple art forms, Isaac majored in psychology by day and wrote and performed sketch comedy by night at the College of Wooster in Ohio. While completing a M.Ed. in Educational Psychology at the University of Washington, he was a member of the University Singers and helped administer a grant from NIH centered on teaching educators about neuroscience as it relates to education.

For fun, he enjoys trying out new recipes, writing fiction, and playing the banjo.
