New York, NY, US



As an experienced creative professional with three years in the field, I have acquired a strong background in contemporary art, design, fashion and business administration and am positive that I am able to fulfill the administrative, research and organizational requirements of managerial and executive positions.

During my time at various contemporary arts institutions and business start ups, I’ve been at the helm of these companies specializing in the organization and upkeep of various databases, every day office management and creative direction. I am confident in my superior organizational, research, administrative, creative and communication skills that have developed and thrived within small office environments. I am seeking a position that would capitalize on my existing education and experience while also providing me with new opportunities to challenge myself and grow.
