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 founded 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.

Constance Péruchot

Constance has always been fascinated by museums, and her first artistic emotions were caught in the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Dijon, where her father used to take her on the weekends when she was little. Gradually, she became passionate about issues linked to the access of museums for everyone. Her studies started with a dual bachelor in Law and in Art history, in Paris. Then she got in SciencesPo Paris for a Master in Public Policy, specializing in cultural policy and management. Always trying to look for, understand, and sometimes criticize new public policies about culture, Constance is interested by many aspects of culture and will surely evolve in this domain.

Jinqiao Zhu

Born in 1995 and of Chinese origin, Jinqiao arrived in France after her baccalaureate at the age of 18. She finished her Bachelor’s Degree in History and History of Art / Archeology at the Université Lumière de Lyon 2, and continued her studies at the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne in Art History. Jinqiao is particularly interested in French ceramics of the end of the 18th century, and she often visits the many museums and cultural sites located in the Paris area. Her passion for arts and culture as well as her energy and positivity are the reasons why she works for Musalley; she translates the Heirlooms into Chinese.
