I have always had a widely varying array of interests; from analysing the implication of new tax legislation to the fine arts and classical music. I have a curious tenacity for understanding complex systems and finding innovative solutions to new problems.

My way of working includes first obtaining a holistic view of the problem, before conducting extensive research on the matter. In order to arrive at the most beneficial solution, I always try  to take into account as many opinions, variables and potential outcomes.

I am research-oriented and enjoy working in multi-disciplinary teams with talented individuals from differing academic and industry backgrounds. I also have a creative side which helps me to think outside the box when it comes to developing new strategies. The wide client base I served during my training contract at Deloitte has taught me adaptability to understand a client’s specific needs and develop innovative solutions tailored to their environment.
