Summary

My experience and training in the arts make me a strong candidate for the Curatorial Assistant position of Media and Performance Art at the Museum of Modern Art. I graduated from New Mexico State University with a BA in Theatre Arts and History; I have worked professionally as an actor, playwright, and producer.

As an independent artist in New York City, I have produced my work at the Cherry Lane Theatre and have also produced several New Media pieces and series to critical success. Being an independent artist the burden of work—securing a venue, the raising of funds, hiring crew, and publicity—falls on me. Being self-motivated and well-organized are key components to my success, and I also have the ability to be a strong role player by taking direction well. Having worked as an artist for years, I have invaluable experience that many applicants just out of school will not have acquired. I am able to offer a fresh prospective on aesthetics and policy. I always put the needs of the project before my own and strongly believe in collaboration.
