I have a master’s degree in Art History from the University of Copenhagen. It has given me an immense reservoir of knowledge within the cultural field. As a part of my education I studied at York University for six months, where I gained an understanding of international relations. I have worked hard to obtain my academic footing, both in and outside the walls of the University.
In the past, I worked at PBA Galleries, an auction house located in San Francisco. It is one of a few auction houses in the United States specialising in rare books, manuscripts, photographs, maps, ephemera, and related items. At PBA Galleries I functioned as an appraiser and cataloguer, recognising and valuating a wide variety of books, arts and works on paper. I produced professional catalogue entries, distinguishing and highlighting valuable traits whilst obtaining and maintaining a professional relationship to a wide range of buyers and consignors. I also co-lead a department of rare books and memorabilia, and was the leading figure of two high profile auctions.
In short, I bring a global outlook and a wide variety of skills through my academic achievements and extensive work experiences. I have a passion for working within the antiquarian book trade and I want to make it my career for years to come. I am looking for employment worldwide as Cataloguer, Assistant or another related position.

I will conclude with a quote that describes me: “You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”
