Work history

Currently

Communications & Promotions Secretary

Friends of the Guildhall Museums

May 2014
  • As Communications Secretary I oversee all the print and digital communication with our members, as well as help with tours of the museum site and behind-the-scenes. I assist in most of the events program and keep members up to date with the calendar. I mainly oversee the brand management and all promotional material. I created and manage the website along with social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter. I designed and regularly send tailored email-updates to our members, and design and produce all the physical printed material we use for promotion and membership forms. I am currently working on a photo-series with a revered photographer to create large-format prints of items from the museums collections.

2015

Store Supervisor

Fieldstaff Antiques

Apr 2013 - Jun 2015
  • I have served as store supervisor and acting manager for a well respected antique store in Rochester for the past few years. I saw to the shop's general running as well as customer service, and learned as much about social and art history as I could to better understand the trade. With a passion for gentleman's fashion, I found an appreciation for vintage tailoring and regularly excel in finding men the appropriate vintage look for events such as The Tweed Run, Goodwood Revival, and other revival events.
