Professional

I work with individual (rather than workplace) clients to help them with their investment and retirement planning. I enjoy helping those approaching (and in retirement) to navigate their way to achieving their financial goals.

Personal

Outside of work, I spend as much time as possible with my young family. I enjoy eating out and socialising but I also enjoy keeping fit, running and the odd game of golf.
