Based in the UAE since 2010, I am an art consultant and writer specialised in contemporary Middle Eastern and Iranian art. 

I regularly contribute to such publications as Canvas, Harper’s Bazaar Art, Art Radar Journal, Jadaliyya, Aesthetica Magazine, and Contemporary Practices. 

Aside from writing, I advise private and corporate collections about first acquisitions, collection development and collection management.
