Spring 2016

The idea for Ascent Contemporary Projects (Ascent for short) came to my friend Alexandra Dubodel and I during a beautiful New York day. About a year later a company was born.
Ascent is an art gallery and curatorial service provider connecting art lovers, budding collectors, and boutique service companies with the works of emerging and mid-career contemporary artists.
In the course of growing the business we were selected as finalists in the New York StartUP 2013 business plan competition, put on 6 exhibitions, and hosted an 8-course culinary experience for 50 people in collaboration with Salvage Supper Club. Personally, I led the initiative of designing the website, working on the year-end financials, and producing branding material. The project is self-funded and continues to strive as a platform of discovering and collecting contemporary art accessible for all.
