Visual Arts Curator:
London Prior to 2002

Prior to my employment in IT I had a number of positions within some of the most prestigious contemporary art galleries in London. With varying roles in some of the most challenging, but also rewarding, environments, helped to cement many of my core fundamental professional skills.
Being responsible for managing significant budgets, personnel, and being responsible for organising what have become historically seminal exhibitions within British cultural history, the work I accomplished during this period is something I am very proud of.
