It was almost inevitable that I would end up working in museums…I have degrees in Zoology and Palaeobiology, and limited social skills. What else was I going to do? I began my career volunteering in the natural science department at Bristol Museum, and quickly fell in love. Several years later, I’m now working as a Documentation Assistant at the Horniman Museum & Gardens in South London. I currently work primarily with the Horniman’s anthroplogy collection, which has been a fascinating learning experience as a scientist with almost no prior knowledge of the discipline. I have a huge love of objects, any objects, and one of my favourite parts of my job is finding amazing things and sharing them with people. Every day at work is a new discovery. Every box contains a glimpse into a different world.
