I have a long held interest in business. My father and both grandfathers ran their own small businesses so I grew up in an environment where challenging the norm was encouraged. I also saw at first-hand the highs and lows of self employment. I have a naturally logical and inquisitive mind, exercising this early on by studying Physics at Bristol University. I’ve always had a healthy sense of competition and determination too which helped me represent GB in road cycling in my youth.

After hanging up my wheels, I decided to pursue my interest in business, becoming a Chartered Accountant with PwC, and ultimately choosing a career in corporate finance. My deal advisory experience now spans almost 10 years, and in that time I have worked on a wide variety of Exit, Acquisition and Fundraising mandates.
