PUTTING ON A SHOW

The first exhibition I ever worked on was Michelangelo’s Drawings at the British Museum in 2006. Given that these works of extreme brilliance only see the light of day in a major show once in a lifetime I feared I had peaked too soon. And then I entered the dynamic, unpredictable world of contemporary art and learnt the rules all over again. I was Director of the pioneering gallery founded by Mandy d’Abo, The Cat Street Gallery in Hong Kong. After four years witnessing and participating in the boom in the Asian art market I returned to London to direct the Contemporary Department of London’s oldest dealership, The Fine Art Society. In October 2016 I was appointed Head of Collections for Soho House Globally.
