The “M” Crew

Here we are, sharing our love for art and museums.

Angela Gala

Angela is a museum professional from Italy. Passionate about the development of the world’s most precious museums and historical sites from a young age, she holds a B.S. in Economics and Management for Arts, Culture and Communication (CLEACC) from Bocconi University in Milan and a M.A. in Museum Studies from the University of San Francisco (USF). While living in California, Angela interned and worked at different museums in the areas of Visitor Services & Education Programs. She relocated to Paris in early 2017, and she started writing for Musalley in May 2017.

Javier Maquieira

Throughout his life there have been two things about which Javier has felt truly passionate: history and stories. That’s the reason why he’s always been looking out for change and renewal both personally and professionally. They say the jobs of the future are yet to be invented or are still being created. In that case, he’d like to sign for the positions of “referenciologist” and “fixer” because that’s what he wants to do. Javier holds a Bachelor’s degree in Advertising and Public Relations from Pompeu Fabra University. Before that he used to tell stories as a ballet dancer and to read history during his free and not-so-free time. His interest in sociology and research led him to take the itinerary in public relations, in which he learnt very practical things about public affairs, crises, social action, and intercultural communication. He also had the chance to fall in love with gender studies during an exchange program at UCLA. After almost a year working as an intern at start-up Glovo, during which he was able to experiment with communication as the company grew, he landed at Ogilvy Public Relations, where he learnt the true meaning of multitasking as an account executive for all types of clients.

Mickaël Villard

Mickaël was born in France, and always lived there. Fluent in English, he works in telecommunication, computer networking and server administration. Passionate about art, he’s been learning digital painting, and music on multiple instruments, his first choice being the piano. He’s an aficionado of cinema, photography, literature, and, since that’s not enough, he also loves programming and game design. Enthusiastic for new experiences and learning opportunities, he’s the French translator for Musalley.
