Profile
Curator

Trevor has proven himself as a global visionary leader within the field of arts management and
throughout his over twenty-year career has guided numerous artists in achieving their
endeavors, most notably the dancer and choreographer Merce Cunningham. In the final years
of Merce Cunningham’s life and artistic career, Trevor served as Executive Director of the
Cunningham Dance Foundation during which time he initiated the creation of the Legacy Plan, a
precedent-setting strategic planning initiative to confront, in accordance with the artist’s wishes,
the organization’s transition to a post-founder existence. As realized, the Legacy Plan included
an 8-million-dollar fundraising campaign to support the Company in a two-year farewell world
tour, technology-driven preservation initiatives, and career transition packages for all artists and
staff.
