Throughout my academic and professional careers, I have maintained over a decade of conceptual continuity, developing myself as an artist and an international art industry professional. Indeed, my entire life has been spent living in many different countries across three continents, and later, through my work with interior architects and designers, work which took me around the world.

My passion has always been in the visual and performing arts, as culture is the most beautiful and direct experience that touches people's minds and souls. I feel that everyone should have opportunities to experience culture and be touched by artists' ideas and aesthetics.

Currently, I have exhausted every opportunity for promotion and experience at my academic level. I crave the opportunity to gain further academic and professional knowledge that only a quality educational institution can provide. I bring years of practical experience in international art promotion, sales, design, and management. My experiences and background will add to the rich tapestry of a metropolitan university, and I am genuinely excited to begin my work.

While I currently live in Southeast Asia, I am anxious once again to immerse myself in a new and diverse culture. For me, the cultural surroundings of an educational institution are just as important as the school's reputation.


London is a city that is teeming with cultural events. More than this, I was impressed by the city's response to the arts. There seemed to be an exhibition or musical performance everywhere, and the public's response was enthusiastic, with local citizens, tourists, and students taking advantage of the events. Combined with this was the omnipresent influence of governmental sponsorship and level of involvement in the arts. And what is an artist or group of artists without their public, their leaders' support, without the need for their creative spirit, their reflections of the most profound truths, and what it truly means to be alive right now? It is to this end that I pursue higher education.

My contributions to the art and cultural worlds will be to create, develop and direct a management company for visual artists, actively seeking out burgeoning artists. I will be able to utilize my battery of contacts and friends in the field, as well as extensive experience and education, to do justice to rising talents. I have already learned that young artists need more than just a white wall or an empty pedestal to display their work. Artists need guidance from grants and appropriate venues for their work to gain recognition on local, regional, and even global levels to reach the right dealers and patrons of art. Additionally, artists need guidance to organize and collaborate with other artists, sharing experiences, ideas, and forums in which to plan.


While serving artists is intrinsic to my plans, an artist without their public is lost. The public must be reached out to and educated, exposing them to the enjoyment and experience of culture. Education need not be programming or 'medicine'; instead, it is about leading people to become more aware of their cultural happenings. The public often lacks the appreciation of what art can do for their mind and soul, something that needs to be experienced, over and above purchased consumer durable goods. A cultural education is to change the public's perspective on culture.


I look forward to the opportunity to develop myself as a creative leader for art, artists, and the public they reflect and challenge. Your time and consideration are appreciated, and I eagerly await a personal interview.
