Artists Circle continues to grow! We've recently hired a new installer, Dan, as an installer and art-handler extraordinaire. Dan has been working with us as a contractor for years and recently was brought on-board as a full time employee.
Q: What do you do at Artists Circle? I set up and execute art installations and transport artwork. I also do small, but important(!), tasks around the office like administrative work and cleaning and organizing.
Q: What do you love? My dog Jasper, a 5 year old husky shepard. I love music; I listen to everything, although currently I've been listening to a lot of an artist named Nahko Bear and some random electronic dance music. I started to learn poi (a style of performance art where you swing tethered weights) to perform at shows and hope to be able to do fire poi one day! I have also been playing acoustic guitar for 15 years and bass guitar for 4 years (wish I had people to play with though).
Q: What do you hate? Traffic... don't get me started.
Q: What do you like to do on the weekends? Go camping! I usually go to my friend's property near Darlington, MD. It's a great place for hiking and shooting, or laying out in a field and having a fire in the woods at night.
Q: What’s an embarrassing story about yourself? When I was young, my sister and I were getting ready for church. I decided to make a bagel with cream cheese. After making it I went to my sister and said that the cream cheese taste funny. She said we didn’t have cream cheese, so I showed her the container and she looks at me and says “Crisco isn’t cream cheese.”
Welcome aboard, Dan!
