In 2002, Halliday moved his company to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where he utilized his professional career experiences and innovative vision to attract clients from the Mid-East and all over the world. Throughout his career in the design business, Halliday also has designed and built custom motorcycles, planes, race cars and motor boats and the resultant fabrication skills that he developed are continually evident in his artwork.

Halliday currently works on metal sculptural objects in his Northwood Village studio, which adjoins the gallery space. His design philosophy centers on a three-dimensional approach to transforming utilitarian materials and spaces into attractive public visual statements, which also incorporates his unique set of professional skills as an artist concentrating on sculpture.
