Wesley is a newer NYC Laner, he’s been on the Lane for about 4 months now and has quickly worked his way up. So far his favorite event was working with Public Art Fund for this Fireboat activation which took place for 4 months! The Laners were greeting guests, leading them to the boat and taking them on the tour through the Hudson River. Wesley said, “It was my first and favorite gig to date! I’m a sucker for a beautiful water view.” Outside the Lane Wes is a great freelance juggler – acting, assistant directing, casting, audition reader, and all things events/production. Wes claims he can’t resist deep talks about humanity, existentialism, and sunflower seed butter. He’s borderline obsessed with the Enneagram (personality typography) and he recently celebrated his 10 year NYC anniversary! To check out more about Wesley head to his Instagram @WesCurt
