I started my career as an Art Dealer; co-founding Alma Enterprises gallery in Bethnal Green in the early 2000s which exhibited a diverse programme of works by unknown and established artists - this lasted for nearly 10 years and concurrently I worked for The Art Newspaper in the commercial division, eventually becoming Associate Publisher. This gave me a keen insight into the Art Market, whilst the gallery fostered my own interests in certain artists and movements.  

I moved to the commercial gallery world when I relocated to Zurich in 2013 to work with a major Modern and Contemporary gallery. On my return to the UK in 2016 I joined Robilant+Voena and pursued an interest in Old Master paintings, as well as continuing to work with and sell artworks of some of the greatest artists of the 20th Century. 

I am particularly keen to continue using my expertise in these varied fields to make an accessibility of collecting, crossing over different centuries, genres and artistic languages whilst remaining within a contemporary context.
