As a student, I studied international transport and later specialized in international marketing and management.

Previously, I wanted to work in the marketing department of a museum and trained at the Norwich Center for Visual Arts in the UK and later on at the Pompidou Center in Paris.

In 1995, I was offered a position in a fine art shipping company, International Art Transport, and begun my professional career. Knowing that I had previous experience packing works of art at the museum and organizing courier shipments during my training, I accepted without hesitation.

Until 2003, I was responsible for their estimate and coordination departments.

I then decided to pursue an interesting and ambitious project: To create and manage a museum department in a company of a smaller size, specializing in auction houses and private clients.

Although the project was a great success, I began to miss the big, international side of business, and began working at Crown in 2011.

My role as a Business Development Manager involves working on various exhibitions with some of the biggest museums across the world. I lead a great team of sales employees, and I'm very proud to be a part of the team.
