Q.What are your abiding memories of your time as a Christie’s Education student?

I have so many excellent memories. I remember hustling through the cold New York City streets that first day of class. I settled into my chair, apprehensive because I hadn't been in a classroom for nearly 20 years, but also excited to see what the professor had in store.

Q. Which aspect of studying at Christie’s has been most useful in your subsequent career?

As a student of the Christie's Education Art Business Certificate, I had unbelievable access to the facility, its faculty, and the actual auction house. It was incredibly useful to gain knowledge about some of the most important art transactions in the world. This level of information is what every art entrepreneur needs as a springboard into the real art world.

Q. Would you recommend Christie’s Education?

Christie's is a legendary institution, and the lessons provided are packed with the most valuable information from the most respected professionals in the world.

Q. What advice would you now offer to your student self?

Take lots of notes. Every lesson is gold!
