Artnet: Sales Operations Liaison July 2022-Ongoing
My time at Artnet has exposed me to the true ins and outs of real sales within the art market. Working with specialists, associates, finance, marketing, and business teams I have spent my time learning and executing the processes needed to complete a sale. A typical day includes liaising with multiple buyers and sellers to facilitate payment processes, Artnet’s commission, and the shipment of art from seller to buyer. Along the way I assist specialist with ad hoc requests including presale shipping logistics, bidding questions and issues. I have also had the privilege of building relationships with clients and tailoring their post-sale experience to fit their needs and wishes. Every day throws something new into the mix, but this position has never failed to give me insight into the inner workings of art sales as well as the always beneficial customer relations skills.
Wildlife Alliance: Development Associate, July 2020-Ongoing
In the time I have been with Wildlife Alliance, I have gained so many skills and knowledge about the operations of an international non-profit. Wildlife Alliance is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit based out of New York, and Phenom Phen, Cambodia focused on wildlife conservation and forrest preservation of primarily Eastern Asia.
As the vast majority of the team is based in Phenom Phen, I have been tasked with maintaining the current office space in Manhattan as well as managing physical donations to the company from across the US. Beyond this I work with the CEO and other individuals to keep records and files organized. Keeping communication open between New York and Cambodia has most certainly posed a fair share of roadblocks, however this experience has opened my eyes to the real impact even one non-profit can have.
Christie’s: Department Coordinator- Classical and Contemporary South East Asian and Indian art April 2021 – September 2021
As an aide to the department, my toolbox of professional and art-specific skills began to grow along with my responsibilities. During my spring and summer at Christie’s I had the privilege to help build and sell over $9 million in South Asian antiquities and modern art. My responsibilities included assisting specialists in research, administrative tasks relating to client relations as well as sale development, and assisting the head of the department with business getting and building client relationships. As the summer drew to a close the attention to the September sales grew. Responsibilities shifted to sale focused tasks, like developing marketing materials and pulling together images, condition reports, and other pertinent information for the sale. The culmination of my time at Christie’s occurred with the impressive sales of South Asian antiquities and modern Indian art.

Spes Nova is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization whose mission is to help alleviate poverty in some of the poorest regions of the world.

I have worked with the founding team at Spes Nova since beginning my studies at Fordham University
