Curriculum Vitae

This may well be the best documentation I have of strange, weird and wonderful job titles

Personal  Statement

I have worked in the arts for over ten years now in a variety roles from a Stand Up Comedian to an Art Handler. To date nobody has dropped a piano on me, though someone did once drop a spirit level on my head while I was holding a painting, both the painting and I survived. My outstanding interpersonal and communication skills make me an excellent hostess and natural sales person. I have a passion for curating and community engagement and am happiest when I am combining the two.
