Future curator and arts and humanities enthusiast. I'm a second year BA Curating student; imbuing my work and studies with compassion, knowledge and dedication to my craft. Having begun my career in events and marketing, I am familiar with the industry and how to use the art of project management to engage with publics. My time since at university has allowed me to extend into wider cultural sectors with a particular interest for sociological methodologies and practices. This past year I have provided curatorial assistance in museums and galleries and, more recently, I am working on some extra-curricular projects including writing articles and poetry. I'm currently seeking opportunities to work and connect with creative individuals and businesses.
