I originally qualified as a Chartered Secretary and then decided on a career in banking. I quickly became disillusioned with this choice of career and joined Menzies in 2001. I qualified as a Chartered Tax Adviser shortly afterwards.
I am a Manager within the Private Client Tax department and act for a very wide range of clients. I enjoy involving the whole family in discussions to ensure they all understand the advice given and are comfortable with any decisions taken.
In addition, I have a wealth of knowledge in connection with all aspects of personal tax, capital gains tax and inheritance tax and advises individuals when undertaking complex transactions.
My first job
Working in a cardboard factory to obtain money to go travelling. It felt like the longest six weeks of my life!
My favourite hobby
Listening to live music – Jazz, Blues, Rock or Indie – anything live.
