In addition, he worked with Leila Heller in New York from the mid to late 1990’s, dealing privately in 20th Century and Contemporary Art. Since joining Leila Heller Gallery, he has been in a position to develop his expertise in the expanding Middle Eastern art market, traveling extensively to Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Istanbul.
