I have a wealth of experience in cultural management in the public and private sector, with over 15 year experience in commercial art galleries and art fairs. I managed the Anish Kapoor Exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery and raised over £2 million for the expansion of the Serpentine Gallery by organising their charity auction in partnership with Sotheby's.
I am an Associate Lecturer on BA Culture, Criticism and Curation at Central Saint Martins and I regularly teach on the business of the Art Market for IESA, London, as well as giving regular talks and keynote speeches.
I hold MAs in Art History from the University of Hamburg and the Courtauld Institute, London; and an MBA (Public Services) from Warwick Business School.
My research areas include art and conflict in the 19th – 21st centuries, contemporary art markets, art and globalisation, private museums, and art schools as institutions.
I am also the London Art Market Correspondent for the German newspaper Handelsblatt.
